The Franklin Battlefield dedicated the 3 of the four replica cannons from the 1st Kentucky Light Artillery that displaced two companies, A and B, from the main line before the battle. They have done a fantastic job with reclaiming the ground where the 100th fought and where the cotton gin is. I was able to visit the battlefield once again and was amazed what I saw. The battle line is impressive and worth a visist for sure.
