AL-Alabama: The Birth of the Confederacy and Witness to its Final Collapse - Thursday through Saturday, November 16 through 18, Montgomery, Selma, Cahaba, Marion, Ebenezer Church and Plantersville AL. The Civil War left an enduring legacy in Alabama where ideologies ranged from fiery secessionism to ardent Unionism. The first capital of the Confederacy was located in Montgomery. Union supporters in Winston County threatened to secede from the state. Selma saw the late-war Battle of Ebenezer Church and its arsenal manufactured much of the Confederacy’s ammunition. After the Civil War, Reconstruction set the state on a course that would culminate in significant events in the U.S. civil rights movement. We will set forth on a unique tour that will visit sites in and around Montgomery, Selma and Marion, Alabama. Most of these are rarely visited by history enthusiasts. Our tour leader, Norman Dasinger, Jr., is a veteran tour leader of Atlanta Campaign sites and the Civil War in Alabama. Registration: $325.00, plus lodging. 800-298-1861, www.cwea.net/programs/1711-alabama-birth-confederacy-and-witness-its-final-collapse
