The Battle of Selma Live Oak tree stood witness to the fall of Selma, Alabama, on April 2, 1865, and the end of the Civil War seven days later. Confederate troops in Selma had braced for an invasion of Union soldiers. In an effort to bring an to end to the Civil War, 14,000 Union cavalry led by General John Harrison Wilson headed toward Selma . The Confederate troops were under the command of General Nathan Bedford Forrest, who, until that time, had not lost a battle. The outnumbered Confederate forces were no match for the Union troops. Selma fell and the war soon ended. This tree is grown from a seed handpicked from the Battle of Selma Live Oak.
