Franklin in Williamson County, Tennessee — The American South (East South Central)
The sense of pride, honor and integrity of the everyday fighting man of the Army of Tennessee made the brilliant careers of these five Brigadier Generals possible. Largely non-slave owning, these brave men of the Army of Tennessee followed Adams, Carter, Strahl, Gist and Granbury across the fields to your right into certain death that November afternoon. Please pause for a moment of respect to their memory!
