Simply put, "Well, Govan, if we must die, let us die like men." General Patrick Cleburne. Great view of the mile march to The Carter a House.

This park area has some old monuments and lovely overlooking views of Franklin Battlefield area, quiet place, but not for anyone with walking difficulties.

Honestly I did not know much about the battle of Franklin prior to my visit. I had heard in passing of it but did not realize the full scale and significance of it. While driving around the historic district of Franklin I saw many signs and references to the battle. I wound up at Winstead Hill and realized that much... More

This park has a great view of the city of downtown Franklin and seeing where the battle was. Plus very informative on the way up. The hike up the hill was not hard.

This is the neatest little stop. It won't take but a few minutes and it's worth exploring. It will take quite a bit longer if you decide to take advantage of the walking trails but to see the area General John Bell Hood had as his vantage age point in the Battle of Franklin will just take a little bit...

There is a overlook with a 3d map showing the key points... More

Hard to believe this used to overlook the entire area; everything has grown up around it. Read the memorials to each of the Confederate Generals; interesting insights to the politics of the Confederacy.

Take a short hike up the hill to see where the generals planned their attack on the Union army. You can see all the way to downtown Franklin. Lots of info on the generals and how they made the biggest mistake of their lives.

Loved the metal map at the top of the hill. Really gave you a great perspective on the area. Grounds well kept.

This site turned out to be much more than we had anticipated. There were a half dozen stone monuments commemorating the 5 Confederate generals who died at the battle of Franklin, a memorial in tribute to the valor of the Army of Tennessee, a monument to an artillery officer killed on the site, and a shelter at the top of...
