27th Alabama soldier writes about Battle of Franklin

J.P. Cannon, a member of the 27th Alabama Infantry, wrote in his diary on November 30, 1864

[The 27th was in Spring Hill the evening of the 29th of November.]

We were awakened before daylight and our mortification was even greater than it was last night to find that the game had flown; every last one of them had walked right out of the trap and was hurrying on towards Franklin.
