Saturday, December 1, 2018:  Mark and Paula headed to historic Franklin, TN.
An American Civil War re-enactor gathering was commemorating the Battle of Franklin in 1864. 
There was some rain so some were huddled under rain gear.

These wee the men who would fight and die for a cause they believed in.
They got a bit philosophical about life and death.
An army needs to eat and this one is no exception.
Muskets were the weapon of the day.  A house there still bears witness with bullet holes from back then.
These were men dedicated to a cause.

Quote of the day:     History is all around us.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
