W hat do the Statue of Liberty, Queen Elizabeth I, Jim Bowie and Franklin D. Roosevelt have in common? They’ll each be on parade tomorrow at 10 a.m. in the annual Andalusia Middle School ‘Living History’ program.

The parade will travel in front of city hall, and immediately following the more than 140 costumed characters will be on the Court Square until noon telling of their life’s history.

Emily Dendy as the Status of Liberty; Rachel Dayton as
Christine of Sweden; Faith Brundidge as Queen Elizabeth I;
Holly Majors as Marie Antoinette; Dieanna Fair as Bessie
Boleman; Moesha Prior as Harriet Tubman; and Lillian
Andrews as Elizabeth Blackwell.
