I see that the bridge is still being well maintained and in some circles the bridge is known as "THE BRIDGE OF BLOODY SUNDAY."
This bridge has bad mana - when I stopped in Selma I knew I had seen the bridge before, but couldn't place why it had made me feel so uneasy. The historic marker told me why, this is the site of the Bloody Sunday attack in March 1965 when cops beat the civil rights marchers. I had seen pictures and... More
The Edmund Pettus Bridge is the symbol for Selma--much like the Statue of Liberty is for New York City or the Coliseum is for Rome. It is not only historic but is a beautiful structure. The bridge at sunset is extraordinary and there are numerous places along the Alabama River that are a photographer's dream for great pictures of the... More

Not much to do here but it seemed important to make the visit and be at the place of such a violent struggle for civil rights.

To me, this is a significant place to help understand an important event in our... More
It means a lot to see the site of history that I remember as a child. There is a small park at one end of the bridge with murals and memorials to those who suffered for liberty.
Enjoyed walking the bridge after spending time at the Interpretive Center. Have gone over the bridge during the Annual Bridge Crossing in the Spring, but it is also very meaningful to walk it at other times.
Sadly, the town hasn't preserved this landmark to the extent it deserves. This very narrow bridge spans over a terribly polluted river and an abandoned, overgrown park. There is a lot of graffiti on the bridge and underneath it, by the park. The cars are flying past so quickly that it's a dangerous walk. There's not a separate, designated pedestrian... More
I was so excited to walk across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama because it is a piece of history, I was lucky enough to have a bit part in SELMA LORD SELMA and walk across that bridge and relive history. I walked across the bridge again behind President Clinton commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King's Voting Rights March. It... More
It's a bridge---with a very SCARY neighborhood on one side and a somewhat run-down town center on the other. No good restaurants within miles. (unless you are a member of Selma CC)
