“The Retreat Across Williamson County” Civil War Tour

There will be no May lecture meeting. Instead the Franklin Civil War Round Table will conduct a Civil War tour on Saturday, May 12th. The tour will trace the December 17th retreat of the Army of Tennessee following the Battle of Nashville across Williamson County.

The tour participants will meet at Brentwood Baptist Church on Concord Road and begin the tour at 8:30 A.M. sharp. This is the location where General James Wilson realized the Confederates were still a dangerous enemy, where one of the largest cavalry charges in American history occurred, and where two soldiers’ actions would earn Medals of Honor.

The tour should be finished about 11:30 A.M. and there is a possible group lunch to follow.  Please reserve your spot by emailing:  gregwade55@yahoo.com. In the event the tour is cancelled due to weather, registrants will be notified by email.

This tour is free to Round Table members. Donations will be requested from non-members with proceeds going to the Wilder Flag Fund.
