The monumental Battle of Franklin occurred 150 years ago, and on Saturday people from across the state gathered to honor the memory of the battle with a re-enactment.

The Eastern Flank Battlefield of the Carnton Plantation welcomed 5,000 spectators and 700 re-enactors for the occasion.

We heard from Abraham Lincoln, and bring you footage from behind the cannons on the battlefield.



  1. I enjoyed the video. I’ve read a lot of Civil War history and seen several re-enactments. This was super realistic! Great photography.
