Twas November Thirtieth, Eighteen Sixty-Four

Mississippi's sons and fathers into battle again were poured. The young and the old. The brave and the bold. Their mission all too plain - to charge across what would be Franklin's bloody plain.

At four o'clock, eighteen brigades that formed the ranks of gray moved against the Yankee foe. Flags flying in grand array. The sight swells the heart with pride for the victory they might gain. Then breaks it with sorrow for those lost on Franklin's bloody plain.
