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...

If you are a Civil War buff then this is a must see. Winstead Hill was the command post for General Hood during the epic battle of Franklin on Nov. 30th 1864, From this point General Hood a a commanding view of the entire battlefield in to Franklin. 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.
