The Battle of Selma, Official Re-Enactment Website
Battle of Selma Grand Military Ball
April 1865 Society, Inc
And its Members
The 148th Anniversary of the Battle of Selma will see some changes for our membership and the ‘Ball’. The Ball will not only be open to our Re-enactor guest but for the first time will be open to the membership of the April 1865 Society, Inc. Below are some important points to remember about this year’s Ball:
NO BALL TICKETS WILL BE SOLD - In the past Sturdivant Hall sold tickets to the Ball to allow non-re-enactor guests, in period dress to attend the Ball. Sturdivant Hall Board decided this year not to sell these tickets.
MEMBERSHIP MAY ATTEND AT NO CHARGE - All members of the April 1865 Society, Inc , in good standing, may attend the ‘Ball’ at no extra charge. There will be a membership list at the door. The member must be on it to enter.
PERIOD DRESS IS STILL REQUIRED - Even if you are a current member, in good standing, members will only be allow to enter in ‘civilian period dress’. If someone in your party is not properly dressed they will not be allowed to enter.
Commemorative Glass - Society Members will also receive a commemorative glass at no charge.

Click on the link to listen to National Public Radio's visit to the Battle of Selma this year. The story mentions how there are less re-enactors nationally every year, even though there is increased interest from the public during the 150th anniversary of the Civil War to see these events. Who will teach the next generation about the biggest conflict in our nation's history? Grab your tents, horse, a friend and come join us at the next Battle of Selma or re-enactment near you.
