Park replaced a Pizza Hut!!!

The actual gin was across the street, and that site is being reclaimed as well as this one. Great efforts are being made to reclaim as many sites as possible.

This is a very small park...just a quick stop on the way to the Carnton Plantation and the confederate cemetery ...but for a history buff...pretty cool!

Stopped here on 150th tour. Important spot of battlefield. Glad to hear that land has been acquired for further preservation.

The restoration efforts in this area are very encouraging. The park is slightly off site of actual Gin but that area is rapidly being restored. Fascinating to see the progress being made on reclaiming the entire core battlefield area, including the Gin and Carter garden. If you have been there before you need to go back to see how much...

Just a small area where a marker is located. A stacked cannonball marker in the middle is not labeled, so a little more information would be helpful at this site.

I liked the park and the stack of cannonballs. Disliked that there was not much information other than a few brief signs; site was not well marked.

So there's a Noble Romans there and a strip mall and it is a little sad to think of all the men who died on the spot, including several generals. You still must go, you still must get a feel for the place AND be happy in the knowledge that soon all this urban sprawl will disappear and the place... More

For this point to be such a very important spot or site during the Battle of Franklin I almost didn't find it II Drove past it twice before I remembered it was somewhere near a pizza place. Never did see the spot where Patrick Cleberne (sp.) was to have been killed. Once I got home and looked it up on... More

This was the center of the battle. Cannon balls stacked and kept clean. The original gin stood across the road at the market. Check out the pictures.

The most disappointing thing about the Battle of Franklin site is that 95% of it has been overrun with development. This is one of the few places where you can stand where the actual battle took place. It is also near the Carter House and Lotz house, so I would recommend visiting it.
