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.

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...

I used to belong to the Sons of Confederate Sam Davis camp that maintains this park and I can tell you they really take this place seriously. It's well kept and is a must-see for all Civil War aficionados. The walk to the top isn't wheel-chair friendly and you may need to stay close to your children but to stand... More

I have visited this place several times before, and it is one of my favorite places in Franklin. From the vantage point, you can see Franklin and imagine what it was like when the Confederates charged down the hill for their beloved cause. It is very well kept and there is even a cell phone walking tour you can use.

You can really see where the battle took place from an un- obstructed view of then entire area. Not hard to imagine what Hood saw as the battle began. The monument itself needs some work, fresh paint and polish on the brass maps showing battle details

The memorial plaques at this staging ground for the Battle of Franklin are a grim reminder of what this battle cost the Confederates. Combined with the Lotz & Carter House Tours it brings the full scene 'to life'.

we've lived here a long time and in September 2012 took our first trip to the Confederate Memorial Park at Winstead Hill. It's a nice area with lots of information regarding the Civil War. There is a nice trail and picnic tables where families can sit and relax. And, its free. Go take a look!
