Battle of Franklin has 149-year anniversary

FRANKLIN, TN (WSMV) -

Saturday marks the 149th anniversary of the Battle of Franklin.

This morning walking tours were given at the battle site.

It's known by many as one of the worst disasters for the Confederate army, but many lives were lost on both sides.

In honor of those that fell, this evening volunteers set up 10,000 luminaries to remember those that once fought.
