The Battle of Franklin Trust hosts Descendants’ Reunions every other year the first weekend of October. This event welcomes descendants of soldiers who fought in the Battle of Franklin, as well as those descended from Franklin residents during the Civil War. Guests gather together and experience the history of their ancestors through special tours, dinners, speakers, and commemorative events. This is a special time for descendants to see first-hand where their ancestors stood over 150 years ago and learn more about this chapter in American history.
