Thomas, our tour guide, has worked for 10 years as a historian of the Lotz family home and it’s part in the bloody battle of Franklin. He shared personal, individual stories of both Federal and Confederate soldiers who fought in the battle on November 30, 1864. He was obviously passionate about the lives that were sacrificed, both in that battle, and in any battle to protect American liberty.
He spoke to the young people in the crowd about finding their passion as well, and acknowledged how the children in the Lotz family were forever changed by what they witnessed the morning after the battle.
I highly recommend this tour and house as a way to bring American History to life!
