Marengo County Alabama

Marengo County was created by the Alabama Territorial legislature on 6 February 1818, from land acquired from the Choctaw Indians by treaty on 24 October 1816.

It is named in honor of a battlefield near Turin, Italy, where the French defeated the Austrians on June 14, 1800. The county seat is Linden. This name was chosen as a compliment to the first Caucasian settlers, exiled French Bonapartists who in 1817 settled the area around Demopolis in an effort to establish a Vine and Olive Colony.
