Useful info:
Montgomery, capital of Alabama, lies in the centre of the state on the east bank of the Alabama River. It is regarded as the birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement. In the Baptist church in Dexter Avenue the first activities of the movement gathered around Martin Luther King, Jr. Nearby is the Civil Rights Memorial in memory of those who gave their life for the movement. Old Alabama Town with its 19th C houses preserves something of the atmosphere of old Montgomery, once an important cotton market. Other places of interest are the Capitol and the White House, the oldest in the Confederate states. On the eastern outskirts of the town are the Museum of Fine Arts and the renowned Alabama Shakespeare Festival Theater. To the east of Montgomery, approximately 43 miles, is Tuskegee University, which originated as a college for the education of blacks founded by the former negro slave Booker T. Washington in 1881.
