On March 24, 1965, the third and final Selma to Montgomery arrived in Montgomery, Alabama. The marchers were led by Martin Luther King, Jr. and other civil rights leaders. Two previous marches were met with violence. This third march began on March 16th and was protected by federal officers and the Alabama National Guard. Its purpose was to protest voting right violations in the state for African-Americans.
