History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The city takes its name from the Warrior coal fields, which J. T. Pierce opened in 1872 in the vicinity. The coal fields were named, in turn, after the Black Warrior River that drains them. The town, which was built on a spur of the L & N Railroad, was originally Warrior Station. The Warrior Post Office (35180) was established in 1872.
