Selma, Alabama is located in Central Alabama along the banks of the Alabama River in the heart of the Black Belt. Selma has a population of just over 20,000 residents and has both an agricultural and industrial economy. Selma garnered national attention during the Civil Rights Movement through the Selma Voting Rights Movement. The local citizens attempt to gain the right to vote led to three Civil Rights Marches being held in the city. The most famous of the marches was the March 7, 1965 Selma to Montgomery March that resulted in over six hundred Civil Rights activists being attacked by state officials on the Edmund Pettis Bridge giving March 7, 1965 the name Bloody Sunday. Today, Selma honors those Civil Rights Activists with an honorary march across the Edmund Pettis Bridge every year on March 7 at the Bridge Crossing Jubilee.
Selma was incorporated in 1820. It became the seat of Dallas County in 1866. Selma served an instrumental role in the Civil War.

The famous ironclad warship Tennessee was manufactured in Selma. Selma Iron Works and Foundry was widely recognized as one of the most important sources of weaponry for the Confederate Army.
