Gadsden [1] is a city in the Appalachian foothills of Alabama.

Understand[edit]

Gadsden was settled in the early 1800's. It has prospered over the years through riverboat commerce, steel production, railways, and agriculture. Though the industry slumped in the late 1980's, the city was awarded the All-America City Award in 1991 for tackling community-wide challenges. The population in July 2009 was 36,744, with an average age of 39.
