On Sunday, August 9th at 3 P.M., the Franklin Civil War Round Table will host author, historian, and tour guide Gregory S. Biggs, who will speak on “The Tullahoma Campaign.”
Prior to June 27th, 1863, the Confederate cavalry in the West consistently dominated their Federal counterparts. Leaders like Nathan Bedford Forrest, Joe Wheeler and John Hunt Morgan had easily handled their Northern opponents. But at Shelbyville, Tennessee, during the Tullahoma Campaign, the Federal cavalry in the West and its commanders came into their own as a formidable fighting machine.
Biggs has written articles for Blue & Gray magazine, Civil War Regiments Journal, North-South Trader, and other publications. He is considered an expert on Civil War flags and had consulted with numerous museums and authors, and has presented flag programs at the Museum of the Confederacy and the National Civil War Museum among others. Biggs has founded and helps lead several Round Tables, lectures across the country, and has led numerous tours of the Western Theater of the war.
