FREE ALABAMA FROM TYRANNY
Montgomery became incorporated when the towns of East Alabama and New Philadelphia merged during 1819, the year Alabama entered into the Union. In 1846 Montgomery was named as the Capitol of Alabama after four other Capitol cities failed. When Alabama seceded to the Confederacy Montgomery became the first Capitol of the Confederacy. Jefferson Davis was sworn in as President of The Confederate States before the Capitol moved to Richmond, Virginia. Due to the move Montgomery was spared from the wide spread destruction that much of the South suffered during the Civil War.
During the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950’s and 1960’s Montgomery took national spotlight, though in many cases unflattering. On December 1, 1955 Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a city transit bus, sparking a massive boycot of the bus line that lasted 382 days that resulted in desegregation of the transit sytem December 21, 1956. Rev Dr. Martin Luther King pastored at the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church from 1954 to 1960. Today the Rosa Parks Civil Rights Museum is located in Montgomery.
Montgomery has moved into the 21st century with it’s aim at the future, putting behind it the turbelant past. The city is full of wonderful attractions and conserved places of historic significance making the city an excellent place to photograph.
