Franklin 150th March to The Carter House

On the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Franklin, both Confederate and Union reenactors and others in civilian attire will converge on the Carter House. The March, organized by the SCV Sam Davis Camp 1293 and the SUVCW Fort Donelson Camp 62, honors all the soldiers who fought in the Battle of Franklin. Meeting at the Carter House signifies the unity of the Nation following the close of that war.

At 4 p.m., Nov. 30, 2014, men and women will assemble on Winstead Hill to be led by men in butternut or gray carrying the Confederate flag for a march to the Carter House. At the same time, another group will assemble at the Fort Granger sign in Pinkerton Park to be led by men in blue carrying the U.S. flag for their march to the Carter House. Those interested are welcome to watch the march or join in the march to the Carter House.

Got an email from Harvey Scarborough:
I thought that I better tell you that I saw Jim Ogden at the Civil War show in Dalton two weeks ago and mentioned the National Cemetery Torchlight Tour for this year. He said that the director there is not requiring the paperwork/permit for the Tour this year; so, he has already planned to put on the Tour with the Veterans Administration and the National Park Service as co-sponsors. He said it would not be necessary for our group to obtain the permit; and, that we would not be called upon to do anything in particular this year. So, it looks like we're out of a job as far as being there as a participant organization. Of course, any of us could go as spectators if we like. We did last year if I remember correctly!

I got a permit last year but when we got there it was like we were not wanted? Need to talk about what we will do this Memorial Day.

We still have the two Union soldiers at the Chattanooga Confederate Cemetery and then James Watkins. And other things.

Let me know what you think by email so we can have a better meeting.
