  1. Loved this article, any chance I can have your permission to include this in my local confederate Rose chapter # 24 newsletter?

    1. You can include it as long as you credit Alabama Pioneers.

  2. My company built all those beautiful Senate chairs, desks and podium. What a fun job.

  3. I believe there is a mistake, omission in the Delegates listing. It appears that only the “J L ” initials of Senator James Lawrence Pugh of Eufaula were included. The initials appear merged with “Curry”. I can prove Ala US Senator the Honorable J L Pugh was there! Please check this out and correct. Important not to promote inaccuracies. Thanks.

  4. I have a desk, that family lore says came from the Confederate Senate. According to the tale, the desk was out for repairs when the Senate was burned and has survived in reasonably good condition. Do you have pictures or any information about the desks? I can send you a picture if you would like.
