Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail

Monday, March 22, 1965, on the second day of the Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights March, protesters passed this site in late afternoon. At that time the four-lane highway in front of you was only two lanes, and for safety reasons the number of marchers was reduced from 4,000 the day before to 300 as the marchers entered Lowndes County.

Marchers covered 17 miles this day and had a little more than a mile farther to go from here before they could rest for the night. Although they were tired, foot sore, and weary, their spirits were high, their smiles broad, and their purpose—securing the right to vote—remained focused.

Once on the road, we began to realize how far seventeen miles is.... Still, we had the singing to buoy our spirits, and there was no end of freedom songs to entertain us and to probably rile most of the onlookers by the road.
