This is Battle of Selma Week when living history tours and a re-enactment
of the April 1865 American Civil War battle here take place in Riverside Park.
Students from North-Central Alabama to Northwest Florida arrive for tours
this Thursday and Friday to learn about 1860's music and games (pictured),
clothing, medical care, blacksmithing, cannons, tent living and cooking,
plus visit the sutleries and sample old-fashioned lemonade and root beer.
