Battle Of Franklin - 3
Photograph - Photo/digital Art
Another 1995 reenactment image from The Battle of Franklin, fought on November 30, 1864, at Franklin, Tennessee, as part of the Franklin-Nashville Campaign of the American Civil War. Gen. John Bell Hood led a Confederate assault that included six infantry divisions containing eighteen brigades with 100 regiments numbering almost 20,000 men. Despite nearly breaking through the center of the Union line, Hood�s forces were driven back with heavy losses. It was one of the worst disasters of the war for the Confederate States Army.
More than 400 historical actors with period-authentic equipment and clothing, were involved in this reenactment. It took place on open fields of Spring Hill, Tennessee, not far from the site of the original battle. In 1995, I lived about 12 miles from there; not surprising that I showed up on the periphery with my camera. Very exciting.
