This Day in Georgia Civil War History

April 02, 1865

Battle of Selma

Union General James H. Wilson defeated Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest at the Battle of Selma in Alabama. This was notable for for a couple of reasons - one Forrest had been a thorn in the side of Union forces since he joined the war effort, but this defeat showed he was not invincible. Secondly, Wilson’s forces would be making appearances in Georgia soon.
