National Historic Landmark

Edmund Pettus Bridge
has been designated a
National Historic Landmark

This site possesses national significance for its
association with "Bloody Sunday," a seminal event in the
Civil Rights Movement. Here, on March 7, 1965,
law enforcement officers violently attacked peaceful
marchers. Media coverage of the confrontation raised
public awareness of the need for voting rights
legislation and resulted in a national outcry that
pressured Congress to pass the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
