We were moored at Selma, on the right bank of the stream, at about midnight, at the foot of the bluff on which the town stands, and whchi was then crowned with the ruins of the cotton warehouses and other buildings, fired by Forrest. See page 519. We spent a greater part of the next day there. It, too, must have been a beautiful city in its best estate before the war.
