“Cleburne’s Last Campaign” at July Round Table

On Sunday, July 10th at 3 P.M., the Franklin Civil War Round Table will present author and historian Lee White of the National Park Service who will speak on “Cleburne’s Last Campaign.”

Western Theater experts contend General Pat Cleburne is one of the most underrated and perhaps significant general officers of the Confederacy. White will recount Cleburne’s role in Hood’s Tennessee Campaign of 1864, and the final compelling story of his death at Franklin. 

White is Park Ranger serving at the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park where he leads tours and other programs.  He is the author of several articles and essays on topics related to the Western Theater and is the editor of Great Things are Expected of Us: The Letters of Colonel C. Irvine Walker, 10th South Carolina Infantry CSA.  In 2013 he released Bushwhacking on a Grand Scale: The Battle of Chickamauga, as part of the Emerging Civil War Series.

The event is free to the public. The Franklin Civil War Round Table is an educational program of Franklin’s Charge, and will meet for this month only at the historic Franklin Masonic Lodge, 115 2nd Ave South, in Franklin. For more information, email fcwrt@yahoo.com.
