American Battlefield Trust Honors Local Battlefield Preservation Champion

At its most recent annual gathering, American Battlefield Trust, a national nonprofit dedicated to preserving the nation’s historic battlefields, honored Robert Hicks of Franklin with the Edwin C. Bearss Lifetime Achievement Award. As a New York Times bestselling author, Robert’s novels have brought national attention to the Franklin community and to the cause of battlefield preservation. When the future of the Franklin battlefield hung in the balance, Robert helped reinvigorate the preservation spirit through his 2005 co-founding of Franklin’s Charge, a broad-based coalition dedicated to recapturing Franklin’s Civil War legacy. Robert then later helped the Trust reclaim and restore nearly 200 acres of hallowed ground in what the National Park Service has called “the largest battlefield reclamation in North American history.” The award is named after renowned historian and preservationist Edwin C. Bearss. The American Battlefield Trust is a nonpartisan organization that has protected more than 50,000 acres associated with the Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and Civil War, including 2,856 acres in Kentucky and 3,516 acres in Tennessee.
