The first permanent Jewish settlers came to Mobile in 1763 as a result of the new British rule and religious tolerance.Jews had not been allowed to officially reside in colonial French Louisiana due to the Code Noir, a decree passed by France's King Louis XIV in 1685 that forbade the exercise of any religion other than Roman Catholicism, and ordered all Jews out of France's colonies.Considered one of the Gulf Coast's cultural centers, Mobile has several art museums, a symphony orchestra, professional opera, professional ballet company, and a large concentration of historic architecture.Mobile is known for having the oldest organized Carnival or Mardi Gras celebrations in the United States.From the 1830s onward, Mobile expanded into a city of commerce with a primary focus on the cotton and slave trades.Many slaves were transported by ship in the coastwise slave trade from the Upper South.
The European settlement of Mobile began with French colonists, who in 1702 constructed Fort Louis de la Louisiane, at Twenty-seven Mile Bluff on the Mobile River, as the first capital of the French colony of La Louisiane.
A plantation economy using slave labor developed in the region and as a consequence Mobile's population exploded.
It came to be settled by attorneys, cotton factors, doctors, merchants and other professionals seeking to capitalize on trade with the upriver areas.
The Spanish wished to eliminate any British threat to their Louisiana colony west of the Mississippi River, which they had received from France in the 1763 Treaty of Paris.
Their actions were condoned by the revolting American colonies, partially evidenced by the presence of Oliver Pollack, representative of the American Continental Congress.
Mobile first became a part of the United States of America in 1813, with the annexation by President James Madison of West Florida from Spain.
