It was a minor engagement in about the same location as the more famous Battle of Franklin (November 30, 1864), part of the Frankli. It was a minor engagement in about the same location as the more famous Battle of Franklin (November 30, 1864), part of the Franklin-Nashville Campaign.

Not only does it provide a day-by-day look at the major events of the war, but lists so many of the small skirmishes and actions as well. Accurate and enjoyable. The division between combatant and civilian at the local level is not always clear.

The Civil War in the United States began in 1861, after decades of simmering tensions between northern and southern states over slavery, states’ rights and westward expansion. Eleven southern states seceded from the Union to form the Confederacy. Ultimately more than 620,000 Americans' lives were lost in the four-year war that ended in a Confederate defeat.

The American Civil War was the largest and most destructive conflict in the Western world between the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 and the onset of World War I in 1914. The Civil War started because of uncompromising differences between the free and slave states over the power of the national government to prohibit slavery in the territories that had not yet become states

The American Civil War (1861 – 1865) was an armed military conflict in the United States of America. The war began when the Southern states elected to secede from the rest of the country in 1861 to form the Confederate States of America for multiple reasons.
