Battle Trust CEO hopes to lead “meaningful discussion” of Civil War issues


The Battle of Franklin Trust will offer a community conversation and dinner at 6 p.m. on Sept. 21.

This intimate discussion will explore topics related to the Civil War and its
aftermath, historical memory, and the future of Civil War interpretation.

“I look forward to welcoming members of the community to join in a thoughtful conversation,” said Battle of Franklin Trust CEO Eric A. Jacobson. “My hope is that individuals who are looking for a dialogue and to perhaps gain some answers can come together to have a meaningful discussion.”
