Summary
This 10-page manuscript entitled "Franklin Was A Unionman," was typed by Miss Alma Shufflebarger, Box 117, Bastian, Virginia, on February 27, 1961. She included Franklin's letters and diary entries along with her own narrative. Miss Shufflebarger kept the original spelling and punctuation in Franklin's letters to his wife as well as his diary entries. Franklin disagreed with the Southern states, but nevertheless enlisted in the Confederate Army. More than once, Franklin deserted, stayed home for awhile, and then returned to the C.S.A. army. Finally, he made his way to Cincinnati and then Batesville, Indiana. He joined the 7th Indiana Cavalry, the 12th Indiana Regiment, and reported to Indianapolis on August 20, 1863. He wrote: "Indiana is a very nice country, rich and furtile soil, has sent over 150 thousand men to crush this rebellion and I feel proud that I have the honor of going in an Ind. Regt. Not only this but also defending our national rights, our government, and for freedom of thousands of our race both white and black." [page 9] Franklin died in Andersonville Prison on December 15, 1864, and is buried at the Andersonville National Cemetery
