Franklin preservationists will celebrate a major victory on Wednesday at 2:30 pm

This Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 CST Battle of Franklin preservationists and enthusiasts will gather at the site of the Carter cotton gin site behind the Domino’s to celebrate the official purchase of the Domino’s and strip mall property where the epicenter of the Battle of Franklin was fought.

I’ve blogged on this many times.

Speakers at the ceremony include Civil War Trust President James Lighthizer, Tennessee Transportation Commissioner John Schroer, Caroll Van West co-chairman of the Tennessee Sesquicentennial Commission, Franklin’s Charge member Julian Bibb and Battle of Franklin Trust Historian Eric Jacobson.

    Hi this is great news; I wonder if there a map of the battle field that can be superimposed over the current sight (where the domino’s and strip mall are) to get a better idea of what we are looking at? Thanks for keeping us updated.
