Nice section of a large 2-3 acre park area where one can stand and imagine the Confederate assault of the Federal line at Franklin (11/30/64). This is where General Cleburne was killed.

A good stop if you are touring significant sites on the Civil War trail. Nicely done. Not big, but a good part of the bigger picture.

The old gin foundation can still be seen today. A monument has been erected to honor Gen Cleburne. Only a short walk from the Carter House.

Basically an empty grass lot with a recently paved walking path. It was part of our Carter house tour but wouldn't really stand alone as an interesting site. No real signage about the battle but there are some rocks showing the foundation of an old...More

There is nothing fantastic about this attraction, nothing wild and attention grabbing, except the history behind the location and the monument that stands there. That alone is worth the visit. With more Americans dying in the four hour span of the Battle of Franklin than...More

This is a nice little spot on the site of the battle of Franklin. Glad they have restored the area and its memory is preserved for another 150 years! Would recommend taking a few minutes to enjoy the site and reflect.
