November events at the Franklin Historical Museum

Saturday November 4. 10:30 AM

The last full measure of devotion – A LOOK AT HOW FRANKLIN HAS HONORED ITS HEROES
A captured enemy ship, a time capsule, and the generosity of a Franklin-born Civil War veteran all figure in the story of how Franklin got its first two war memorials. Local historian, Alan Earls presents a slide show and tells the story of the town's monuments to its large contingent of Civil War soldiers as well as the related and far more tangled tale of the town's Spanish American War monument.

Sunday November 5, 1:15PM


Karen (Ren) Antonowicz of Spirits of Fashion discusses the influence of war and rationing on 1940s Fashions. Despite the restrictions there was still a distinct style and trends that developed in everyday fashion. Join us as she presents dress and style of the WWII era.

Sunday November 19, 1:15PM
