If you want to get an idea of what the Confederate army faced marching toward the disaster at the battle of Franklin, you can see it here. Monuments to the 5 dead generals and a good interpretation of the battle. A great stop on your tour of the Battle of Franklin.

Drive out to Breezy Hill and see all of Franklin with the most scenic view! Park and walk through the park and witness the view that some of the civil war soldiers saw as they marched and fought their way up Columbia Pike.

Not only does this hill overlook the route to the Battle of Franklin, it overlooks the memorial gardens where Tom is buried. Tom was our neighbor and a yankee boy who found the South and loved it. I will go by Winstead Hill every November to remember the battle and our friend Tom. Thanks to Kathy S for the General... More

Beautiful view of Franklin (?) and battlefield, plus Ft. Granger. Entire battle is laid out on relief map at pavilion overlooking the plain. Memorial markers to the six Confederate Generals who fell at Franklin on site and very compelling.

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...
