"The Battle of Franklin" by Captain John K. Shellenberger, 1902

 File — Folder: 1, item: 1
From the Collection:

This collection consists of a 29-page pamphlet by Captain John K. Shellenberger entitled "The Battle of Franklin." Its text constitutes a published version of a speech that Shellenberger gave before a meeting of the Minnesota Commandery of the Loyal Legion of the U. S. on December 9, 1902. In this work, Shellenberger describes tactical aspects of the Battle of Franklin, the condition of the Union soldiers before the battle, and the plight of the men wounded during the battle. He also expresses his opinions of and experiences with the opposing Confederate troops and argues that General Schofield was responsible for the high Union casualties incurred because he allowed a small Union force to hamper the operation of the whole.
