The Alabama Tour: Jacksonville


I’ve never seen a town with as many historic markers as Jacksonville, AL. And they love their Civil War history. The town square alone, though quite small, has at least 6 markers, not to mention those sprinkled through out the town. Jacksonville is north of Anniston on highway 21, and you have to circle around the town square to get through it.

Pictured are those in the square, along with the Civil War monument.

I'm a professional vagabond. I quit my cubical job in January 2014. Since then, I've hiked the Appalachian Trail, The Camino, and taught English in Vietnam, Turkey, Russia, Spain, Mexico and Peru. I'm exploring the world and you can come too!
