Signs, Signs (150th Battle of Selma)

Signs promoting the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Selma are everywhere,
 even hanging from this balcony at the St. James Hotel
 during last week's Alabama River Chili Cookoff. 

Battle Weekend begins with living history tours for school children April 23 and 24
 and continues with a writers' forum, pre-battle skirmish, sutler settlement,
 Battle of Selma Ball and the main battle re-enactment on Sunday, the 25th.

Linking to Signs, Signs

And quite a balcony to take in the view too. I like the fine details.

OOH, I love that wrought iron on the balcony.
It's so good to see places remembering and celebrating their history.

That balcony is a great place for a sign. Not sure what the Battle of Selma is. I'm assuming it isn't violent.

Taken for Granted, There is a link to the Battle of Selma in the blog that will tell you all about it! This year is the 150th anniversary, and back then, it was very violent.
