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.

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.

This large monument on the grounds of the Alabama State Capitol building in Montgomery. Honoring the confederate dead, the monument stretches high atop Goat Hill. In addition to this monument, there is a nice statue of Jefferson Davis the first president of the confederacy, the moon tree which is a large pine that was grown from seeds that were taken... More
