War Would End

War would end if the dead could return.
- Stanley Baldwin

This Daughters of the Confederacy dedicated this monument to the memory of Confederate soldiers in 1899. The monument stands in the round-about on the square in downtown Franklin.

To answer a question as to whether I have attended the Battle of Franklin Commemoration: I have not, but I plan to go this year and will hopefully have a photo of it this weekend. In 1995, however, I attended a re-enactment of the Battle of Franklin.

Those are neat looking homes in yesterday's photo! And I like the way you composed today's. The framing is great. You have a neat blog Chris. I like it.

He has a wonderful view of Franklin, doesn't he? :)

Some banks have pretty funny names, don't they?

(Re: the ground floor of the turreted house, it might've been a small shop or workshop.)

I think loosers must be remembered. They fought with honour and bravery. For a wrong idiea, maybe... but that is another thing.

Looks like a city I would like. Are those little bird statues on the tops of the buildings?
