U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, D-Ala., center, looks on as a wreath is placed on the Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, Ala. on Saturday March 5, 2011. A group of about 20 federal lawmakers marked the anniversary of a key moment in the civil rights movement with a commemoration that will end with activists walking across a historic bridge. The events mark the 46th anniversary of the Bloody Sunday, when authorities beat back civil rights demonstrators who marched across the bridge toward Montgomery on March 7, 1965. The Selma-to-Montgomery march was held in response and built momentum for passage of the landmark Voting Rights Act of 1965. less
