Civil War son visits exact spot where his father fought at Franklin

Harold Becker’s father’s unit – the 128th Indiana – was posted on the far left Union flank, near the Nashville-Decatur Railroad, part of Stiles’s Brigade. That brigade faced the onslaught of numerous Confederate units from Featherston’s Brigade on November 30th, 1864.

Harold still has his father’s Enfield rifle he used at Franklin.
