Honorable tribute to the Confederacy and all the soldiers in general. On the grounds of the Capitol building. A history lesson and art all in one.

The camillias were in bloom and perfectly viewed as we walked the staircase to a simply beautiful and most respectful monument to those who fought for human rights. This monument is so impressive, take a moment to feel a piece of America.

It is right out the north door of the capital so there is no reason not to see it if you are at the capital anyway, I like the seaman statue the best.

The Confederate monument on the north end of the Alabama State Capitol grounds is one of the biggest I've ever seen. On our walk around the Capitol, I was "wowed" when I first saw it. I was most impressed that the cornerstone was laid by President Jefferson Davis himself! Each department of the Confederacy was represented in this impressive memorial.

I love wandering through old cemeteries, so this Confederate Cemetery and Monument was right up my alley. There is an informative information center on site, but the grounds were where I spent my afternoon. As noted above, not for everyone, just us history buffs!
