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

This is an amazing monument on the grounds of the Capitol which honors those who fought for the Confederacy and died during the Civil War. It stands 88 feet high. The detail of this monument is incredible. We just finished a tour of the Capitol, so just had to walk around the building to see this monument. Well worth the... More

This monument on the grounds of the Alabama Capitol stands to tell a part of the history of the United States, one that some times is misrepresented. It was raining while we were there but the monument with the First National Flag of the Confederacy still told their story.

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.
