FRANKLIN, TN--(Marketwired - Jul 1, 2014) - The Civil War, perhaps the most seismic conflict in our nation's history, remains a frequent topic of study, discussion, documentaries, and introspection to this day. Its legacy and poignancy are everlasting. This fall, over 6,000 people from the world over will descend upon Franklin, Tennessee to pay tribute to what is colloquially referred to as "The Last Campaign in Tennessee," from November 13th-16th. This year marks the 150th Anniversary of the 1864 Battle of Franklin. The historic town will play host to Tennessee's Civil War Sesquicentennial Signature Event, with a variety of activities commemorating the battle, the soldiers, and Tennessee's sacrifice.
