The Franklin community cares for its Civil War Confederate dead

“Show me the manner in which a nation or a community cares for its dead and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender sympathies of its people, their respect for the laws of the land, and their loyalty to high ideals.”
– William Gladstone, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, circa 1870
