Confederate descendants and re-enactors dressed in soldiers' uniforms and hoop skirts marched down the main avenue in Montgomery on Saturday to mark the 150th anniversary of the inauguration of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.
They started at a fountain where slaves were once sold, past the church that Martin Luther King Jr. led during the Montgomery Bus Boycott, and ended at the Capitol steps, where Alabama's old and modern history often collide.
Reception to the parade was mixed. Some called it a celebration of their heritage. Others disagreed. State NAACP President Benard Simelton said, "The whole celebration is akin to celebrating the Holocaust."
