It was a glorious evening in Franklin tonight as hundreds – perhaps even thousands – came out to Carnton Plantation to attend the 145th commemoration of the Battle of Franklin. 10,000 candles were illuminated and placed in scores of rows on the Eastern Flank at Carnton. Historian-authors Eric Jacobson and Thomas Flagel shared a few appropriate words.
A photo gallery of the event is here.
