The Franklin Theatre will present a rare large-screen viewing of Robert Lee Hodge’s Emmy-award winning documentary The Battle of Franklin. Opening the event will be 30 minutes of music by The Army of Tennessee Brass Band, playing songs heard at the Battle of Franklin, and Virginia fiddle and banjo player Brent Feito, who has appeared on time.com.

Shown on PBS, The Battle of Franklin movie has gotten many accolades from the experts -- 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 will go towards protection of the Franklin battlefield.
