Battle of Franklin Reminiscences


Going through “old” pictures recently, I happened on these from the 2014 commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Franklin.  They are: 1) Ed Bearss and I agreeing on the critical role of Jacob Cox in winning the day; 2) Thomas Cartwright and I at Winstead Hill, from which John Bell Hood, looking at the Union bulwark, ordered the last massive offensive onslaught of the Civil War; 3-4) two descriptive tablets of the action around the Carter House; and 5) me standing under the placard of Jacob Cox, which was displayed on the streets of Franklin during the anniversary period.  It is now displayed on the wall of my home office!  Enjoy.
