Franklin In The Civil War
Two companies of the 146th Ohio (100 day) Infantry Regiment were also raised locally. In all, more than 200 township men served in the Union's Armies. Over 100 of these men served in regiments that enlisted for the three years that performed most of the war's fighting. From this group, more than 20 men died. More than 20 men were wounded, several more than once. About 30 men were captured and most of these same men suffered months in Confederate prisoner of war camps. Four men who enlisted from Franklin rose to become colonels or lieutenant colonels. Obadiah Maxwell was brevetted a brigadier general.
