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.
