Sunday April 19: Civil War Walking Tour: Mary Ann Neeley and Bob Bradley join forces at 2 p.m. Sunday to lead participants on a Civil War-centered tour of downtown Montgomery — an event originally scheduled for April 12 but postponed due to rain. Join the group at the base of the Capitol steps.
This tour of Civil War sites in downtown Montgomery includes the Winter Building, where the telegraph went out to fire on Fort Sumter, and the Capitol steps where Jefferson Davis was sworn in as the president of the Confederacy. This two to three-hour tour begins at the foot of the State Capitol steps and concludes at the riverfront. Ideal parking can be found midway down Dexter Avenue or Commerce Street. Afterward, they invite those 21 years and older to join them at a local "watering hole" for a wrap-up. Cost is $10 for the public, and free for Landmarks members and children younger than 12.
For all walking tours, wear comfortable clothes and shoes and bring water. For more Oakwood or Civil War tour information, call 240-4500.
