The Franklin Civil War Round Table will hold a presentation Sunday, Dec. 8 to explore what happened to Confederate General John B. Hood’s army after their defeat at Nashville in December 1864.
The event begins at 3 p.m. and is held in the Community Room of the Franklin Police Department. It is free and open to the public.
Greg Wade, a staff writer for the Civil War News and a battlefield preservationist, will speak on this topic that covers the infamous general’s Tennessee campaign that ended in December 1864 with defeat in Nashville.
Wade will discuss what happened to the rank and file soldiers the night after the Battle of Nashville ended and the outcome of one of the largest cavalry charges in North American history.
“The persistence and courage of soldiers of both sides on the day immediately after the Battle of Nashville” will be covered, according to a press statement.
Wade, a Franklin resident, has participated in numerous Civil War events including reenactments with the Williamson Grays and conducting artifact surveys at Harlinsdale Park and the Eastern Flank Battlefield for the city parks department.
