Owner description: It was on this stretch of U.S. 80 that protestors led by Martin Luther King marched from Selma to Montgomery in 1965.

We drove from Selma to Montgomery after visiting the Pettus Bridge.
We wanted to visit the Hank Williams grave in Montgomery.
I am so pleased we drove this historic trial as it was quiet due to the time of our visit and beautifully due to the greenery and surrounding trees.

It looks bigger on TV. The actions of the marchers are much bigger in size. This is a quick walk across, but a significant one and worth the time to go if you are passing through Selma.

We drove from Montgomery to Selma. The drive is beautiful and easy. Beware: There are plenty of state troopers on the road! There are historical markers all along the way.

This one-hour drive along the National Historic Trail starting at the Pettus Bridge includes the Lowdnes Interpretive Center about 1/2 way to Montgomery. Unfortunately, we mistimed our travels and the center was closed.

It’s a very pleasant drive, not a whole lot of traffic or twists or turns. Just watch your speed as Alabama State Troopers were strategically parked in the medium or camouflaged in the brush along the journey just waiting to make your day or test your Civil Rights!
