The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. Tuscaloosa is a city in west central Alabama in the southern United States. On the Black Warrior River, it is the seat of Tuscaloosa CountyGR6 and the fifth-largest city in Alabama with a population of 81,358 in 2005. Tuscaloosa is named after the Choctaw chieftain Tuskalusa, who battled and was defeated by Hernando de Soto in 1540 in the Battle of Mauvila.
The area at the fall line of what would be later known as the Black Warrior River had long been well known to the various Indian tribes whose shifting fortunes brought them to West Alabama. The river shoals at Tuscaloosa represented the southernmost site on the river which could be forded under most conditions. Inevitably, a network of Indian trails converged upon the place, the same network which, in the first years of the 19th Century began to lead a few intrepid white frontiersmeAn to the area.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Tuscaloosa has a total area of 172.8 square kilometers. 145.7 square kilometers of it is land and 27.1 square kilometers of it is water. Most of which is comprised of Lake Tuscaloosa and the Black Warrior River, which is entirely in the city limits. In the city the population was spread out with 19.8 percent under the age of 18, 24.5 percent from 18 to 24, 25.4 percent from 25 to 44, 18.5 percent from 45 to 64, and 11.8 percent who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 28 years. For every 100 females there were 90.8 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 87.9 males.
Tuscaloosa is home to a variety of cultural sites and events reflective of its historical and modern role in Alabama and the Southeast in general. Many of these cultural events are sponsored by the University of Alabama. DCH Regional Medical Center is the main medical facility in Tuscaloosa. Tuscaloosa is well connected to other parts of the country and the world via air, rail, road and sea. It can also be considered as the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destination that enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers to become one of the most visited places.
