    »Shadow Lawn Memorial Gardens Cemetery

    Its difficult to dig deep into Civil Rights history in Birmingham without hearing about The Four Little Girls. In 1963 four little girls (Denise McNair, Cynthia Wesley, Addie Mae Collins, and Carol Robertson) were killed when members of the Ku Klux Klan planted 22 sticks of dynamite outside the basement of the 16th Street Baptist Church. Shadow Lawn Memorial Gardens was the original place that housed their remains. The 40-acre cemetery is also said to be the final resting place for over 100 Civil War veterans. Recent actions have tried to raise funds and awareness for the unique piece of Birmingham history. - Terah Shelton
