Memorial for Unknown Civil War Soldier Held in Former Barracks in Tennessee

Services for an unknown Civil War soldier were held Saturday in a Tennessee church that served as a barracks and hospital during the conflict.

The coffin draped in Confederate and Union flags was transported Saturday from St. Paul's Episcopal Church to the Historic Rest Haven Cemetery in a horse-drawn carriage and accompanied by Civil War re-enactors.

Officials don't know which side the soldier fought on when was among the nearly 2,000 killed in the 1864 Battle of Franklin.
