Chilton County, Alabama, is located south of Birmingham, bordered on the east by the Coosa River and on the west by Talladega National Forest. It is named for a Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court who initially opposed secession, but then served the Confederacy. This book of historical photographs for a county that is 10% Black and 7.6% Hispanic has two pictures of Black men and no pictures of any Hispanics. Instead it has lots of pictures of beauty queens, businessmen, and buildings.
