Behind the Scenes: The Battle of Franklin


The Battle of Franklin opened this past weekend and I’m exceedingly grateful to all the folks who have worked so hard (and are still working hard) to bring it to the stage. Here’s a behind the scenes video that gives a little more insight into the production.

The show runs for two more weeks. Tickets are available at You can also purchase a hardcover edition of the script here in the Rabbit Room Store (the concept album is also available).

Pete Peterson is the author of the Revolutionary War adventure The Fiddler’s Gun and its sequel Fiddler’s Green. Among the many strange things he’s been in life are the following: U.S Marine air traffic controller, television editor, art teacher and boatwright at the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch, and progenitor of the mysterious Budge-Nuzzard. He lives in Nashville with his wife, Jennifer, where he's the Executive Director of the Rabbit Room and Managing Editor of Rabbit Room Press.
