The letter this week is "P," and we're headed over to Port Columbus,
or rather, Port Columbus came to Selma!
Port Columbus (in Georgia) was a major Confederate port located 200 miles inland
on the Chattahoochee River. Last weekend, some representatives
from the Port Columbus National Civil War Naval Museum participated
in the Battle of Selma school tours, sharing information about the last significant
land battle of the Civil War. Like Selma and Richmond, Columbus manufactured
goods for the Confederacy, including firearms, steam engines, cannons
and iron for the ironclad ships.
