“The Franklin Theatre in conjunction with The Heritage Foundation, and Robert Lee Hodge will present a rare large-screen viewing of the Emmy-award winning 74-minute documentary “The Battle of Franklin: Five Hours in the Valley of Death”, and preservation fundraiser.
The program will include an introduction and comments by the director and producer, filmmaker, and preservationist Robert Lee Hodge. One-third of the proceeds will benefit preservation of the Franklin battlefield. Chief Historian Emeritus of the National Park Service, Ed Bearss, said, “One of the best, if not the best, documentaries I have seen on a Civil War battle. Not since Ken Burns’ monumental PBS production, The Civil War, have I seen better.”
One-third of the proceeds from ticket sales goes to protection of the Franklin battlefield via The Heritage Foundation.”
