Capitol Selma Marchers Oppose Honoring Civil War General http://apr.org/post/selma-marchers-oppose-honoring-civil-war-general More than 60 people have marched from the historic Edmund Pettus Bridge to Selma City Hall to protest a monument to a Civil War general being rebuilt in a Selma cemetery. The biracial group carried signs Tuesday and chanted, "No justice, no peace." Their leader, activist Rose Toure, said Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest was an early leader of the Ku Klux Klan. The marchers went to City Hall to ask the City Council to deny permission to rebuild the monument.
