Artillery HellﬁreSeveral Federal gun crews delivered relentless fire to this portion of the Franklin battlefield late in the afternoon of November 30, 1864. At least fourteen of the Union's thirty-six fieldpieces engaged at Franklin could hit the Eastern flank here. The Confederate side was at a distinct disadvantage in terms of artillery because most batteries were still on the road from Columbia, unable to reach the battle in time to counter the Federal shot and shell.
