First Confederate Capitol

A view of the Alabama Capitol, in Montgomery, in 1886. This building also served as the first capitol of the Confederate States of America from 4 February 1861 until 29 May 1861, when the Confederate capital was removed to Richmond, Virginia. Two sessions of the Provisional Congress were held in Montgomery, adjourning May 21. The Permanent Constitution was adopted there on 12 March 1861.
