Montgomery


Located in South central Alabama, Montgomery is the capital and second largest city of the state. As of the 2000 census, the city's population was 201,568.

Montgomery was briefly, in 1861, the capital of the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War. However, when Virginia seceded from the Union, the Confederacy moved their capital to Richmond.

Many important events in the civil rights movement took place in Montgomery. Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. was pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, from 1954 to 1960. Rosa Parks' refusal to give-up her bus-seat to a white man, also took place in Montgomery, and this led to the 382-day Montgomery Bus Boycott which eventually persuaded the city to desegregate its transit system.

Attractions in Montgomery include:
