Centennial Dedication:Sunday, 25 June 2000, 5PM
The 100 year rededication of Admiral Semmes'
statue on Government St. at the present Bankhead tunnel.
This postcard from 1913 and shows how the Semmes
monument was originally at Duncan Place (there was no tunnel then!)
The rededication ceremonies were well attended
with a 17 gun cannon salute including mortars and the guns of Fort Conde.
It was a grand celebration in the old style of
Confederate parades. A plaque was unveiled on the rear of the monument.
