Joe,

Unreal, but why does this not surprise me??  Like it or not, a major battle of the Civil War took place in Franklin.  How those in power continue to avoid that fact boggles the mind here. If you are gonna commemorate a historical event, than do so without trying to be politically correct as they seem to be doing. 

If folks out there don't understand that there were 2 sides who fought there, than why bother to even have a ceremony acknowledging what took place there?? 

When I read about the changes out there, I was thrilled to think, finally, they are recognizing just what happened there.  Reading this article tonight makes me ill.

The Civil War came to Franklin on 11-30-1864.  It should be remembered and those who fought and died there should be remembered as well.  Why is that so hard for them to understand?

Regards from the Garden State,
