An absolute must stop for any trip to Franklin!! Carnton Plantation was amazing. Beautifully restored accurate to the owners at the time of the Battle of Franklin. Our tour guide knew the plantation, it's history, the family and Carnton's role in history very well. She answered questions well and made the history come alive so much it even kept my children's attention. The grounds are beautifully kept and the cemetery the MacGavock family created is very moving.
