Franklin’s Unknown Soldier

I have taken tens of thousands of pictures of Civil War battlefields, and a healthy portion of those are centered around Franklin and middle Tennessee. I’m slowly starting to create photo books to tell the story of the Civil War in pictures.

My first photo book is:

Franklin’s Unknown Civil War Soldier: Memorial Service and Interment at Rest Haven Cemetery | October 10, 2009. A Pictorial Gallery.

Several thousand people attended the Oct 2009 rei-nterment of Franklin’s (TN) unknown Civil War soldier. The soldiers’ remains were hosted in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church (built 1834) and were placed on a horse-drawn carriage as it traveled through historic downtown Franklin, with the streets lined with thousands of spectators, and made it’s way to Rest Haven Cemetery.

The entire event was like stepping back in time in 1864. I paid a professional photographer to cover the event for me. He took over 1,000 photos and I have picked the very best to tell the story in beautiful images.

We also had two living sons (one CSA and one Union) and one real Confederate daughter attend the ceremony.

I will personally inscribe each book.
