Pictures from my Alabama Trip, April 2006

This is the grave of Commander Catsby ap Roger Jones, who commanded CSS Virginia during the engagement with USS Monitor on March 9. 1862

This was the First Executive Mansion of the CSA, before the government later moved to Richmond, VA.
This is the State Capital building in Montgomery, Alabama. At the top of these stairs, Jefferson Davis was sworn in as Provisional President of the CSA on February 18, 1861. In 1965, the famous Selma to Montgomery March ended on the same spot.

This is where the Confederate States was formed on February 8, 1861

It was in this room that Alabama voted to seceed on January 11, 1861

More later
