The Florida in the Civil War Message Board

Save The Franklin Battlefield!

Hi Everybody,
I normally don't broadcast announcements on the message boards, but this is something important we, as a group, can do to help raise money for the Franklin Battlefield through "Franklin's Charge" -

The Christie Cookie Co. is donating a total of $25,000 to charities. From now through October 15, you can nominate your favorite charity to win. The most nominated charity will receive a check for $10,000. The runner-up wins $5,000, and the next 10 will receive $1,000 each. It takes less than 2 minutes to vote.

Franklin's Charge was in first place in this contest, but has dropped to sixth (6th) when I last checked. Please visit the Christie Cookie site at and place your vote for "Franklin's Charge Franklin, TN". DO NOT VOTE FOR FRANKLIN BATTLEFIELD FRANKLIN TN!!! The "Franklin's Charge" listing is the correct one.

Please tell you friends, family or anyone else you think might be interested in helping to preserve this important piece of American History, the Franklin Battlefield.

I would like to recognize my good friend and resident "senior vexillologist" Greg Biggs for making us aware of this outstanding opportunity to use the message boards for such a good cause.
