Escambia County Alabama

Escambia County Alabama

Escambia County Alabama population is 38,319. Its county seat is Brewton, Alabama.

Historic American Indian tribes in the area included the Muskogean-speaking Creek, Choctaw, and Alabama, who had inhabited the lands for centuries and had many settlements. The former two tribes were among those in the Southeast whom the European-American settlers called the Five Civilized Tribes, as they adopted some European-American cultural ways in an attempt to survive alongside the encroachment of settlers moving into the area in the early nineteenth century. Most of these people were removed by United States forces in the 1830s to Indian Territory west of the Mississippi River.
