On Sunday, July 12th at 3 P.M., the Franklin Civil War Round Table will host community leader and preservationist Julian Bibb, who will present “Reclaiming the Franklin Battlefield: An Update.”
The acquisition of core battlefield property in Franklin has increased in pace and acreage since the 2005 purchase of the Eastern Flank property. Much has been accomplished and much remains to be done. Julian Bibb will update the efforts to establish the Carter Hill battlefield park next to The Carter House. He will discuss recreation of the Cotton Gin and future plans for the park.
Bibb, an attorney with Stites & Harbison, works tirelessly for the betterment of life in Franklin and Williamson County. He is a founding member of Franklin’s Charge, and in 2011 was awarded the Shelby Foote Preservation Legacy Award for battlefield preservation by the Civil War Trust.
