  Looking down Dexter Ave. from the Capitol Steps
by Stephen-KarenConn

The six block stretch of Dexter Avenue, leading from the State Capitol building, down toward the Alabama River, and ending at Court Square, is the heart of downtown Montgomery. Any visitor to the city would do well to walk these blocks. Numerous historical markers along the way point out significant buildings and the sites of important historical events.

Since the 1840s, historic processions passing along Dexter Avenue to the Capitol included:
Jefferson Davis Inagural, 2-18-1861
Gen. J. H. Wilson's Union Calvary Corps, 4-12-1865
167th Infantry Regt. Rainbow Division, 5-12-1919
Selma-Montgomery Civil Rights March, 3-25-1965
