Battle of Franklin 1995 Reenactment Page9    

10/95 Battle of Franklin Reenactment. Ed Conner Photos
Meanwhile, Union infantry has moved into the artillery battery position to reinforce it; the Rebs have broken through and are about to overrun it.  Hand-to-hand combat developed before the Confederates were repulsed, but unfortunately, I ran out of film at this point!

The Confederate attackers begin to swarm over the ditch and threaten to break through the breastworks



The Federal line has been broken and more Confederate infantry charges in to widen the breach.  As in the actual battle, the Confederates were thrown back.  They formed and charged three more times, being repulsed each time and the reenactment was over
The Battle of Franklin will be reenacted again in October, 2004 to observe the 140th Anniversary of the Battle
