Martial Law Declared in Alabama

National Guard soldiers with fixed bayonets on their rifles move down a street as Alabama's Governor Patterson proclaimed martial law to prevent further outbreaks of violence. The Governor acted after officers threw tear gas into a large jeering crowd gathered across the street from a mass meeting. The protestors were gathered in a church to hear the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. speak. (Photo by Bettmann Archive/Getty Images)
