Murals Saved!

GREAT NEWS! The CSS Alabama/Adm. Semmes mural that was in the east bound Alabama Welcome Centre at the Mississippi line has been saved from the scrap heap of memories. The Semmes family took possession of this heritage art and we can’t say thank you enough to this family for their efforts in preserving the legacy of our heroes. I know that lots of you, like me, made many a stop at the welcome centre just to see this mural. Plans are being made to display the mural in Mobile. Is this exciting or what?

“I received copy of the following message via the 290 Foundation’s  Facebook page. If this report is accurate all I can say is ‘Well done the Semmes family – and thank you!”
