Honor Never Dies

Found this video at Old Virginia Blog here is more 

Heading Back Home: Franklin’s Unknown Soldier and the Civil War’s Five Bloodiest Hours chronicles the profound 2009 discovery of a Civil War soldier’s remains in Franklin, Tenn. However, this film is so much more than just the story of the unknown soldier, it also sheds light on the historically overlooked Battle of Franklin, considered the bloodiest and most brutal five hours of the entire Civil War. As historian and author Eric Jacobson said after previewing the film, it tells the story of the Battle of Franklin like “it’s never been told before”.

The detailed maps, Hollywood-like battle scenes, expert accounts, original music, and narration from legendary actor Lee Majors makes this something very, very special. Heading Back Home isn’t just a lesson in history – it’s a lesson in life. The film was written, produced and directed by the husband-wife team of Brian Speciale and Jodi Jones-Speciale.

Commanders Podcast for 12-27-10

Get ready for four plus years of the media, and certain political groups attacking the SCV for presenting living history, commemorating the events of the War Between the States and, of course, dragging our ancestors name through the mud. Go here to listen to my thoughts on this.
