Joel A Battle Lodge

This from Jim Stephens-
There is a great write up page of Joel A. Battle and says he was State
Tresurer after the civil war.
The story says that the Lodge was built by the Knights
of Pythias and named in his honor and I believe it was located on
the corner of Second and Lindsley. This may have been the building on
the corner which is referred to in the
second and lindsley photo as the teamster lodge on my site.
The write up of Battle is great -it is located at tennessee-scv.org
