The First Monday Trade Days event represents the heart of Scottsboro's Valued History. Some have suggested that it should be removed from the square as it takes up parking, I say, those who say this do not realize the historical significance and prosperity of the event.
To remove First Monday from the Courthouse Square is denying the reality of history and the importance of history to our community. First Monday goes back to the foundations of our judicial system where the Grand Jury met on the first Monday of the month and people traveled far and wide to see their friends, talk about politics, their families events, to participate in government and trade. Historically, First Monday was the one or few days that government worked to bring the people together. We still celebrate the historical significance of the event today in Scottsboro, Alabama. This is the First Monday we know and prosper from its' history,
We want our money...
