Battle of Selma Re-enactment

Battle of Selma

The Battle of Selma, Wilson’s Raid in Alabama and Georgia (1865), was a military engagement near the end of the American Civil War. It was fought in Selma, Alabama, on April 2, 1865, a town of about ten thousand inhabitants. Selma, Dallas Countyg, had become a major industrial and manufacturing center during the war and provided critical support to Confederate States of America infantry and naval forces. Situated on the banks of the Alabama

River in a region far removed from the war’s major theaters, the Selma Ordnance and Naval Foundry produced war materiel until the final weeks of the conflict.

Hamilton Hills Lodge is a family owned whitetail deer hunting lodge. We limit the size of our hunting groups to allow over 1,000 acres per hunter. All of our hunting stands are enclosed “shooting towers” elevated 11 feet off the ground and are very comfortable during rain, cold, and windy conditions. You will hunt winter cereal grain and clover food plots and greenfields, woodland trails and scrapelines, hardwood bottoms, timber clearcuts and cutovers. At Hamilton Hills we believe the condition of our deer herd produced through our Quality Deer Management techniques, our hunting facilities, guide experience, and individual attention will allow you to have a truly enjoyable, rewarding, and successful hunting experience.
