Once again Throwback Thursday must appear a day early - since tomorrow is Thanksgiving the Public Library will be closed for the next four days. This week's subject is Yours Truly standing in the Cheairs Family Cemetery at Spring Hill, Tennessee, scene of a notable reenactment of the battles of Spring Hill, Franklin, and Nashville held in early October, 2004. (The Cheairs were owners of the plantation estate known as Rippavilla which served as one of the settings for the event.) Below, Doug Garnett, standing center, prepares the cemetery for use as an improvised field hospital during the Franklin scenario. For more about this event and additional photos, please see:
