  •   the only national monument (0+ / 0-)

    is Russell Cave. if there are sites at Selma, they might be state memorials or something like that. Alabama does not have much federal land, only 1.6% of Alabama territory is federal. a lot of that is due to the fact that idea of national parks and monuments didn't come to the fore until the 20th century, most of the areas that might have been worthy of  monument or park designation, like Niagara Falls, were already developed by that time.
