Franklin, Tennessee


The Battle of Franklin Trust will host an illumination ceremony to commemorate the 153rd anniversary of the Battle of Franklin on Monday, November 30 at 4 p.m.

The ceremony to commemorate the battle’s anniversary will begin at 4 p.m. at The Carter Hill Battlefield Park.

"This event is always one of the most moving ceremonies we perform here at the Trust," said Eric A. Jacobson, chief executive officer of The Battle of Franklin Trust, in a press release. "It is difficult to explain the toll of this battle with words alone, and seeing these 10,000 luminaries glowing at dusk really contributes to our understanding of what happened here in Franklin on Nov. 30, 1864. This year promises to be especially profound."
