After the Civil War, many former slaves moved to Birmingham, making it the most blackened city in Alabama until after World War II. The presence of the federal government has a large role in the development of Birmingham because of the activities of several agencies including the Department of Defense, which is responsible for Oakleigh Park and Red Mountain Park.
