Our Governor, Robert Bentley, has ordered the Confederate flag removed from the Capitol grounds. The man is an embarrassment and clearly does not represent the people of Alabama. Steps must be taken to ensure he is held accountable for this traitorous action and that the flags may be returned to their proper places.
Following the removal of the ‘SECEDE’ sign, St. Andrew’s News took the opportunity to visit Montgomery, our Capitol. Despite all the misfortune that has befallen it, it still remains a very handsome city, specifically in the downtown government and river districts. The Museum of Alabama, also known as the Archives, has many wonderful collections on display in a very grande building.
More articles displayed from the early Spanish and French would have been appreciated, but limited space probably forbids.
Just a short walk from the Archives is a beautiful Spanish-styled parish, St. John the Baptist. Unfortunately the building was locked, so we could not go in to pray.
Next stop was the Old Capitol Building.
Anyone denigrating our people should visit the Capitol and see firsthand the history, culture, and civilisation our forefathers have built.
