Franklin’s adopted Civil War son, Harold Becker, turns 92 today. You will recall his father, Charles Conrad Becker, fought in the 128th Indiana at Franklin. I’ve blogged on Harold and the reburial event we had recently many times before.

Funny story . . . Harold told me he was born on October 30th and his brother was born November 1st. For years his mother always celebrated BOTH their birthdays on Halloween, October 31st. He told me he was much older before he even realized his birthday was actually on October 30th!
