“The Battle of Franklin was a devastating defeat for the Confederacy. I tried to tell this story in the most direct way possible - by showing the horrors of war with lots of bodies. I used the early morning sun to focus attention on Cleburne as all eyes are on him. But the eye finally comes to rest on the shadowy foreground and delivers the real message.”
