Fellow CWRTs,

The link below will take you to the online slide show with 287 photos taken during the October 10th funeral of the Civil War soldier found a few months ago south of Franklin, Tennessee. As it was not discernible as to what side he fought for, the US and CS flags were laid on his coffin and reenactors from both sides participated.
The event drew thousands of spectators and two Real Sons of a Union soldier and a Confederate soldier. Both men can be seen in the photos a number of times.

Members of the Clarksville, Nashville and Franklin CWRTs participated as did Sons Of Union Veterans members and Sons of Confederate Veterans members. David Fraley, interim director of the Carter House, gave one of the eulogies.

Please enjoy this slide show and be sure to pass it around to your membership. We may never see another Civil War funeral in our lifetimes.

Greg Biggs
Clarksville CWRT
