“The Alamo Connection”
Reviewed July 13, 2003

My daughter and I visited Franklin and were treated to a comprehensive tour of the old jail and museum, including a lot of information/history about Jim Bowie, who as everyone knows, was one of the heroes of the Alamo. Also of interest to us were the old court papers that have so meticulously been preserved, as we both work on the legal field. The historians in Franklin have done a wonderful job of preserving its history and a trip there is well worth it!
