Did The Daughters of The Confederacy Choose The Wrong star?
I think they intended to use the seven pointed star, no?
One way or the other, the star marker sits between the center columns at the front of the Alabama Capitol building, though there are reports Davis actually stood on a wooden platform built for that purpose over the stairs.
So where is the reference to the Native American Tribes that were here LONG before the other countries that are given some Coat of Arms real estate?

I spent a while in Selma today, and here are some of the photos I made:
This bears the name of a New Orleans metal casting company. It is attached to a building on Broad street in Selma. You can see the building HERE. (Thanks to George McDonald for pointing out to me that the Broad Street building is ONLY a facade. There's just an empty lot behind it! I HOPE someone will save these "Bennett & Lurges" markers when, and if, that facade is dismantled!)

The statue of confederate president Jefferson Davis outside the Alabama Capitol Building in which the confederacy was founded. Davis was sworn in on the front steps of the building in 1861. The confederate capital was moved to Richmond three months later.
The names of the states that seceded from the United States are engraved in the base of the statue.

Am I the only one in Montgomery who hates the Downtown parking meters that require you to use a credit card?
There are plenty of people who are NOT going to download an "app" just to be able to park!
Some of them include a warning NOT to use coins, even though there is a coin slot in the damned things. And if you don't have a smart phone, they give you a phone number to call! What if you don't have a cell phone?
Where are the senior citizen groups protesting?

I liked them enough that I had them enlarged and framed.
The camera I made them with is long gone, but I
The statue and hallway may have been at a Salesian school in the Mobile area.
Please send me a note if you recognize them!

Sitting on the Armed Forces Vietnam Network jeep in Quang Tri. I spent half my year working for Army Newspapers, the other half anchoring TV news. My 10:00pm News was monitored by the North
Vietnamese, since we were the closest station to the DMZ, about 10 miles inside South Vietnam.
I celebrated my 20th birthday there.
