Free lecture tells of Selma’s role as manufacturing center for Confederacy
Researcher Bill Lockridge will speak about the Alabama city's significance Aug. 31 at a free Lunch and Learn program
“Selma played a role in the war that has gone largely unrecognized,” says Lockridge. “It was probably the most significant center of manufacturing, shipbuilding, transportation and logistics in the trans-Chattahoochee,” a term he uses to describe the Western theater between the Georgia-Alabama border and the Mississippi River. The area, he says, “is where the war was lost” by the South.
