Selma-to-Montgomery National Historic Trail

1212 Old Montgomery Road, Tuskegee, Alabama
This historic trail commemorates the civil rights marches from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, the first of three taking place on March 7, 1965. In an event known as "Bloody Sunday," demonstrators were brutalized by Alabama state troopers. On their third attempt, the demonstrators, led by Dr. King, peacefully passed into Montgomery, inspiring the passing of the Voting Rights Act on Aug. 6, 1965.
