Description

Step back in time to March 1865 in Selma, Alabama as the North and the South faced off in the Battle of Selma. Out-numbered, the Confederate troops defended the city, until finally they were overrun by the Union. This reenactment takes you back to the camps of both sides, where you can experience first-hand the hardships of being a soldier in the 19th century. In addition to the encampments and battle reenactment, you are invited to join the yearly gala, where participants dress in period costumes in one of Selma’s historic southern mansions.
