Please join us for a Chambersburg Civil War Seminars & Tours Lecture Series! Our next lecture will be: "Let Us Die Like Men: The Battle of Franklin" given by Lee White.
Cost is $5 per person. Zoom Login details will be sent with your email registration confirmation.
"Let Us Die Like Men: The Battle of Franklin"; the great attack on the late Indian summer afternoon of November 30, 1864, has been regarded as the "Death of an army." Covering over two miles of open ground, the "Army of the Heartland,"
made its final, desperate assault, against a heavily fortified opponent, veterans it had faced on many other fields before, yet somehow this time was different. It became the stuff of legend, with the death of six Confederate generals, and thousands of the last die-hard men the Confederacy had.
A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Save the Franklin Battlefield.
