Remains of a Union soldier have been found in a shallow grave on the Franklin (TN) battlefield. A bullet found in the grave leads researchers to conclude that the cause of death was likely a gunshot wound, but the excavation process damaged the remains enough that they were unable to fix cause of death conclusively. A funeral and reburial on October 10th is planned in Franklin; the remains will lie in state from October 8-10; re-enactors (Union and Confederate) are welcome to participate on the 10th in the march of a horse-drawn caisson from the church to the cemetery:
