(Skywatch Friday) Preparing for the Ball

Skies are fair today, but what will they be like tomorrow night for the Battle of Selma Grand Military Ball? The ball is held outside in the main courtyard at Sturdivant Hall, and right now the forecast calls for rain and possible severe weather.

The event brings Federal and Confederate officers and their wives together for a dance before the Sunday battle. Non-military personnel can attend too, provided they have tickets and wear period dress.

What a fancy, grand, noble home! I hope you'll show us the people dressed up for the ball!

What a beautiful old house. I can imagine a ball with all the regalia.

What a gorgeous house! Stately columns yet such delicate details.

I really hope the ball didn't get rained out! That would such a big disappointment for everyone.

Hi Hilda, I heard the ball had to be moved inside at the old armory. Not the same atmosphere but better than getting soaked!
