The 150th anniversary of the Battle of Selma was re-enacted Sunday with
hundreds of reenactors and a hillside full of spectators.
In this photo, homes north of Selma are burned by Union Gen. J.H. Wilson's Cavalry as they advance on Confederate forces behind the fortifications. In the actual battle on April 2, 1865, Wilson's Raiders
went on to destroy Selma's arms manufacturing facilities and burn much of the town.
