The Franklin Theatre will present a rare large-screen viewing of Robert Lee Hodge’s Emmy-award winning documentary The Battle of Franklin to benefit the Franklin Battlefield preservation efforts.

Shown on PBS, The Battle of Franklin film 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.
