Steps from where MLK, Jr. completed the march from Selma, there is a huge monument to the white men who stole and enslaved millions of Africans, then fought and died to preserve that system. Does Hitler deserve a monument? He probably didn't kill as many people.

After lunch I took a stroll around the capitol before I had to get back. This monument is HUGE. While standing there a man in a business suit left the side door of the capitol and walked over and started talking to me about how they were forced to take down the flags, and people just don't understand heritage. I... More

This should be removed from the Capitol grounds, and replaced with a monument to the slaves upon whose backs the Alabama economy was built. I understand not wanting to "erase history," but we don't need these ridiculous monuments to remember a failed rebellion.

Went to take a look at this monument because I read they are debating taking it down. This is an incredible piece of American history and it will be shameful to remove it. Recognizing our history does not glorify it and in no way does this monument do any injustice to who we are as a nation now. This is... More

Monument while on grounds, is somewhat difficult to see. Those that forget the past are doomed to repeat it. While we might not agree with what it represents, it is part of the road we as a people took to get to today.

I guess its ok for someone visiting from out of town but being from Montgomery Alabama and my mother working downtown for all of my childhood it was a normal thing.

It's a beautiful monument and shows the pride of the community in their history. It's easy to judge, but if you can appreciate it for what it is, it's worth a stop.

I don't think that we should be paying homage to a dark time in America's history. The Jefferson Davis statue is also poor taste. I think both of them should be removed. I guess both monuments are a reminder so we don't repeat the past.

The structure is nicely displayed, but, why give any honor at all to people who wanted slavery to continue!!! I wanted to tear it down, and felt as if it dishonored the memory of how people suffered unjustly at the hands of others. I know we must remember all parts of the past, but a monument to people who thought... More
