Something Wicked in Russell County

Premiere Date:Monday, February 21, 2011

In the 1940s, Phenix City, Alabama was controlled by out of town mobsters. Gambling, prostitution, alcohol and drugs were a central part of the night life in the Russell County community. Attorney and resident Albert Patterson wanted to clean up the town and ran for Attorney General. Patterson was gunned down, murdered for his ambitions. Martial Law was declared and the clean up began. ALABAMA STORIES explores how the city overcame all obstacles and rose from the ashes. In 1955 Phenix City was awarded the title "All American City."
