The Battle of Franklin by James R. Knight


The Civil War Battle of Franklin, Tennessee, was several hours of intense fighting, some of the most tragic of the whole  war.

Knight’s full title, The Battle of Franklin: When the Devil Had Full Possession of the Earth, sums up the horror of that fateful day and evening of November 30, 1864.

The author shares eye-witness descriptions and accounts of the battle and the days leading up to it. Readers may feel, as I did, that they are experiencing the terrible fighting through the accounts. Well-written book for lovers of the Civil War and American History.
