Summary
Also known as the "Secession Constitution." The preamble states that "We, the people of the State of Alabama, having separated ourselves from the government known as the United States of America ..." The constitution includes the following articles: declaration of rights; distribution of powers; legislative department; executive department and militia; judicial department and impeachment; general provisions; education; banking; and slavery. There are also two explanatory provisions. The first describes the change from the territorial to the state form of government, and the second describes the secession of Alabama from the United States. The document is written on 11 sheets of parchment, each page glued to the one below it; it is 20 feet and 8 inches long. The text of the constitution is available online on the website of the Alabama Legislature: http://www.legislature.state.al.us/misc/history/constitutions/1861/1861.html
