FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) — A Civil War soldier whose remains were found in a battlefield grave last spring was reburied Saturday by admirers who knew neither his name nor even what side he fought on.
Among the history buffs paying tribute to him were two old men whose fathers fought on opposing sides in the War Between the States.
“This soldier represents all of the soldiers, the thousands that were lost and are still buried across the South,” said Robin Hood, chairman of the Franklin Battlefield Task Force that organized the event.
