On Sunday, November 10th at 3 P.M., the Franklin Civil War Round Table will present historian and author Stewart Cruikshank who will speak on “Civil War Veterans at Rest Haven Cemetery.”
The Rest Haven Cemetery, located just off Hillsboro Road in Franklin, was recently placed on the National Register of Historic Sites. Many of the soldiers buried there were Confederates, but several were Federal soldiers. Cruikshank will tell the fascinating and little-known stories of these men and their connection to Franklin.
Cruikshank is a graduate of West Virginia University with a degree in Political Science and History. Along with his Civil War Veterans at Rest Haven Cemetery, he has also authored Major General James Scott Negley and the Mutiny at Camp Negley.
