US Hwy 80
Selma, AL

The image of Selma is wrapped up in this bridge and, perhaps, deservedly so. It was the impetus to Civil Rights legislation.

As I walked over the bridge a few times, the decayed beauty of this waterfront town revealed itself to me in the morning sun. There is a forlorn dignity to the buildings. Driving into an equally architecturally significant neighborhood directly adjacent to the small downtown core, potential seems to be around every corner. Yet, much of Selma still seems, at least on the surface, frozen.

It’s a beautiful thing to walk and drive over this bridge from both sides. We had the pleasure of seeing it from both sides. It’s really a short walk as far as distance. We took a lot of pictures. Very good experience. When you get across the bridge there is a park you can go thru a trail and see the rocks and the mirror. If you’re visiting Selma Alabama l highly recommend. Very moving experience. Lots of information and history with the voting Rights Act.

I was very moved to see this bridge in person. We looked at it from both ends and drove over it.

It seemed to echo with history and the birth of the Voting Rights act.

Come see it.

The bridge itself is beautiful architecturally, but the real beauty here is the history of this small town and the mark the march on this bridge has made in civil rights history. It’s real easy to find free street parking and walk leisurely across. It’s a must stop/walk if you’re in Selma. And be sure to check out the interpretive center across the street for a quick history lesson.

Just a bridge, and yet, so much more. An icon in the civil rights struggle. Still named after an enemy of democratic equality, but appropriated in the march through Selma. Wish there were more specific markers with detail ON the bridge, and a safety rail along the sidewalk, and even a side platform to more safely take pictures and stand back while mid-bridge to really take in the moment. It stands for so much; the bridge itself could use a little more care and development given its value to our country.

Need not rate it for any reason history of the bridge speaks for itself. But I had to give a star in order to post my comment.

5 stars for the experience of watching the bridge during sunset and trying to relive the history behind it. Felt sad to see the abandoned state of the city Selma though.

When I was walking on the bridge and trying to capture it on my camera, some people from passing by cars honked or shouted at me. When I seemed to be startled by the unexpected attention, they drove away laughing and feeling pleased. Not so happy with that experience!

I cannot really provide a rating worthy of this location. The walk across the bridge envoked so many thoughts as you think about what happend here. The experience was like no other. As far as the site itself it’s very clean and well mantained. The height of the bridge was pretty surprising its a tough look over depending on your sensitivity to height. It was a quick ride from Montgomery AL. We also made it to the museum it took probably 3 hours total it’s a nice trip for a sunny day. I will defiently be back.

I was driving to Texas and had to pass through Alabama on the one way and figured it was worth it to make a detour to see this bridge. Always loved history and its not often I get see civil rights sites ever since I left the south. I can’t not give it 5 stars, I mean it is just a bridge but there’s so much tied to it as far as equal voting rights. Really…not much to review here.

Edmund Pettus Bridge is part of the National Park Services National Historic Trail. It is part of the Selma to Montgomery March US Highway 80 in 1965. We visited this place for the 50 year historical march of the civil right movement.

The bridge is located at US 80 at Alabama River. Since we have visited late in the evening, no tourist is around that time. In 1965 March 7 approximated 600 civil right movement people try to march as far as six blocks from the bridge and met with local lawmen and attack them with Billy club and tear gas and drove them back to Selma. Two day later, Martin Luther King, Jr., led a “symbolic” march to the bridge. Then civil rights leaders sought court protection for a third, full-scale march from Selma to the state capitol in Montgomery.

The symbolic march starts with 3200 people and end with 25000 people in the 5 day march. This march is in the peak of civil right movement for the right to vote. President Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act of 1965–the best possible redress of grievances. The bridge setting over the Alabama River is beautiful. This place is very peace and quiet and who can think it is symbol for an important movement.

Go to visit the bridge if you close to Montgomery.

So small and ‘regular’ but yet so important. The history just floods over you. If you are a civil rights or history nut then this place should be on your bucket list. There are plaques in the area, and plenty to see in this town. Go see the visitor center – great staff!. The Brown AME church, museums all impressive. The bridge itself feels like just stepping into history. GO!!

I love it when a historical piece of history is well maintained. I felt like a part of history having been here. There is plenty of parking located across the street before the bridge.

This is an excellent piece of history and very interesting. I was just going to drive the route from Selma to Montgomery, but the National Park Service has a very nice interpretive center (along US 80), so I stopped there and watched a movie about the 1965 March. I learned SO much, picked up pamphlets, then went back into Selma to see all the historic places. It was something really great to do, and I highly recommend it. The National Park Service is one of our greatest assets and I am so appreciative of how they educate people.

When I finished all the places I wanted to see in Selma (see the bridge and the church, for sure), I drove the 50-mile route to Montgomery, ending up at their beautiful Capitol building. I have a lot of photographs and explanations, so rather than posting them all, I am putting a link to my blog which describes in detail my visit to Selma.

Do this, and take your kids. It’s free and it’s interesting and you will come away realizing exactly what the power of the people can do.

    Edmund Pettus Bridge is part of the National Park Services National Historic Trail. It is part of the Selma to Montgomery March US Highway 80  in 1965. We visited this place for the 50 year historical march of the civil right movement.

    The bridge is located at US 80 at Alabama River. Since we have visited late in the evening, no tourist is around that time. In 1965 March 7 approximated 600 civil right movement people try to march as far as six blocks from the bridge and met with local lawmen and attack them with Billy club and tear gas and drove them back to Selma. Two day later, Martin Luther King, Jr., led a “symbolic” march to the bridge. Then civil rights leaders sought court protection for a third, full-scale march from Selma to the state capitol in Montgomery.

    The symbolic march starts with 3200 people and end with 25000 people in the 5 day march. This march is in the peak of civil right movement for the right to vote. President Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act of 1965–the best possible redress of grievances. The bridge setting over the Alabama River is beautiful. This place is very peace and quiet and who can think it is symbol for an important movement.

    Go to visit the bridge if you close to Montgomery.

    This is an excellent piece of history and very interesting.  I was just going to drive the route from Selma to Montgomery, but the National Park Service has a very nice interpretive center (along US 80), so I stopped there and watched a movie about the 1965 March.  I learned SO much, picked up pamphlets, then went back into Selma to see all the historic places.  It was something really great to do, and I highly recommend it.  The National Park Service is one of our greatest assets and I am so appreciative of how they educate people.

    When I finished all the places I wanted to see in Selma (see the bridge and the church, for sure), I drove the 50-mile route to Montgomery, ending up at their beautiful Capitol building.  I have a lot of photographs and explanations, so rather than posting them all, I am putting a link to my blog which describes in detail my visit to Selma.

    Do this, and take your kids. It’s free and it’s interesting and you will come away realizing exactly what the power of the people can do.
