Reclaim a Lost Battlefield-The Battle of Franklin-Tennessee
EPIC CARNAGE, HISTORIC OPPORTUNITY Donors who give $100 or more will have their names placed on a battlefield marker
2012 you have an opportunity to reclaim maybe the bloodiest acre of Civil War battlefield ground anywhere - the very ground where Confederate soldiers under the command of Pat Cleburne , Hiram Granbury, and Francis Cockrell were locked in a savage struggle with men from Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. Today this historic tract sports a Domino’s Pizza and a small market selling cheap beer. On November 30, 1864, this ground was covered with Confederate dead and wounded soldiers.
