Heading Back Home: Franklin's Unknown Soldier and the Civil War's
Five Bloodiest Hours chronicles the 2009 discovery of a Civil War
soldier's remains in Franklin, Tenn. However, this film is so much more than
just the story of the unknown soldier, it also tells the story of the
historically overlooked Battle of Franklin, considered the bloodiest and most
brutal five hours of the entire Civil War. As historian and author Eric
Jacobson said after previewing the film, it tells the story of the Battle of
Franklin like "it's never been told before".
The detailed maps, Hollywood-like battle scenes, expert accounts, original
music, and narration from legendary actor Lee Majors makes this something
very, very special. Heading Back Home isn't just a lesson in history - it's a
lesson in life. The film was written, produced and directed by the
husband-wife team of Brian Speciale and Jodi Jones-Speciale.
