Questions for Photo 4

1. This photo shows the marchers in rural Lowndes County, where the road to Montgomery, was only two lanes wide. Judge Johnson had ruled that no more than 300 people could march in this section. Why do you think he made that ruling?

2. According to Hosea Williams, the division of the Alabama National Guard that was ordered to protect the march, was the same unit that attacked the marchers on Bloody Sunday. How do you think the guardsmen would have felt about their current assignment? How do you think the marchers would have felt?
