Fuller Story Marker: Reconstruction

This marker, located nearest the intersection of the roundabout and 2nd Avenue, details the time of reconstruction following the Civil War. It details the stories of former Franklin area slaves A.N.C. Williams, Mariah Reddick, and Harvey McLemore who became respected community members and are representative of the contributions of freed slaves to the Franklin community. It also depicts the effects of reconstruction at the same time across the South and in both state and federal governments.
