This is the place where General Hood stood and watched his troops. If you bring binoculars you will get a better idea of the logistics of the battle especially if you go when the trees are not leafed out. The whole park gives you a walk down history lane and is well worth the stop. It's free and really not... More

This is a great little freebie. We visited several places in Franklin, for those of you with younger kids, the houses are better than the civil war tour. It was a bit much for my elementary school child. For the people that "can't find it" it's 2 miles from the carter house and battle ground, it's VERY plain to see... More

The Winstead Hill Park is a very neat place. They have many confederate state graves there to look at and it is very interesting. I would recommend you go.

I was unable to locate this site. Additional signage may be needed. We drove over one mile from Carter House, but we're disappointed that we couldn't find it.

A wonderful short stop to learn about the Battle of Franklin. It takes you up to the top of the hill where the generals could see out to Franklin and plan their attack. Unfortunately it didn't work out the way they planned and it was a sad massacre for the South. Also go see the Carter House, the Lotz House,... More

This is a very interesting place because it was where the commander of the Army of Tennessee, Lt. General John Bell Hood, oversaw the Battle of Franklin. His command center is just about a half mile south; an old plantation not open to visitors. There is an excellent terrain map at the top of the hill that shows all the... More

Winstead Hill Park was the promontory which Gen. Bell used as a vantage point during the Civil War Battle of Franklin. Steps take you up to this site and along the way there are various informational plaques to read. Once down from this walk, you can enjoy a picnic, fly a kite, toss a frisbee, football, or baseball in a... More
