Soldier in Franklin Square

 

Visit Historic Downtown Franklin TN

 

If you've been to downtown Franklin TN you have seen the monument of the soldier in the Town Square.

 

The statue was placed there in 1899 by the Daughters of The Confederacy to honor the Franklin TN men who fought and died in the Battle of Franklin.   

 

If you seen the Franklin statue, you may have noticed the chip in the brim of the soldier's hat. The chip was there even on the day the monument was unveiled. The hat was chipped when they raised the monument in November of 1899.

From my blog: “...This peaked my interest in running Lt. Bearden's biography down leading me from battle to battle, through almost every major conflict in the Western Theater of the American Civil War. I found that my ancestor had been wounded twice in The Battle of Atlanta, the second wound in the upper-thigh (usually fatal),  leading a rear-guard action out of Atlanta near Jonesboro, Georgia. He would have been presumed to have been beyond help, but a particular nurse from Shelbyville, Tennessee took a special interest in the young Lieutenant. He survived, and they married after the war. Walter S. Bearden practiced law and was a Circuit Judge in Middle Tennessee for many years. He also was very involved with his former Sargent Sumner Archibald Cunningham in the publishing and circulation of The Confederate Veteran Magazine, a collection of Confederate stories of the war. He also was one of the keynote speakers at the dedication of the Confederate monument in the Franklin City Square around the turn of the 20th Century.” http://wp.me/p1D3tu-N
