I also visit the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, with exhibits documenting the struggle of African-American citizens in Birmingham. The Institute is located across from the 16th Street Baptist Church where the 1963 bombing occurred, killing four little girls. A very moving and powerful experience. On Tuesday I begin my ride home, and make a detour to visit the oldest registered distillery in the United States.
