Alert: Yankees Headed This Way!
The Yankees are coming and headed toward Selma! Hide your gold, your silver and get ready to defend our city!
The Battle of Selma reenactment returns this weekend to present living history of one of the last battles of the Civil War, fought just days before the South's surrender in April 1865. Almost 2,000 school children have pre-registered for the authentic 1860's campground tours on Thursday and Friday that include the Alabama Division Headquarters. A skirmish takes place on Saturday as well as the Battle of Selma Ball at Sturdivant Hall Saturday night and the battle on Sunday afternoon.
