This thing is cool!

The craftsmanship it took to create this thing is unreal. there are at least four "faces" to the monument and each one is as intricately carved and assembled as the other. Also... read more

Walk up the hill to the capital and view this beautiful monument to honor the men who fought for the Confederacy. The sculptor work is really outstanding and the poetry one the monument is very touching. Enjoyed seeing it and looking over the city. The only disappointed was that they have the descriptions of all the flags that flew in... More

The craftsmanship it took to create this thing is unreal. there are at least four "faces" to the monument and each one is as intricately carved and assembled as the other. Also an easy stop and look attraction in Montgomery. Right outside the Capitol.

The story of the men and women that fought to protect their homes and families from an invading army is one heard around the world in many war torn countries. This was also the case in the southern states in the middle of the 19tj century. This memorial is a reminder if what was sacrificed for their cause of independence... More

OK as monuments go, one better hurry before it is removed along with all other history of the Confederate States of America. One of the better monuments to Confederate Soldiers throughout the South.

To take something down is to remove our history, whether you like it or not, good or bad, it's our history!!!

It saddens me to read the simplistic opinions of prejudiced people regarding this memorial. We were here today on a field trip for 4th graders and it was a great catalyst for discussion about men from another time who felt protective of their homes and their sovereignty. Yes, there was an great injustice taking place but it was a different... More

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
