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 all of the American's lost in D-Day during WWII, it is worth stopping briefly to... More

This area was part of a strip mall, that was purchased to become part of the Civl War battle site. An archeological excavation revealed the foundations of the cotton gin, which will be rebuilt when funds are available. Part of the Carter House civil war site.

The actual gin was across the street, and that site is being reclaimed as well as this one. Great efforts are being made to reclaim as many sites as possible.

This is a very small park...just a quick stop on the way to the Carnton Plantation and the confederate cemetery ...but for a history buff...pretty cool!

The restoration efforts in this area are very encouraging. The park is slightly off site of actual Gin but that area is rapidly being restored. Fascinating to see the progress being made on reclaiming the entire core battlefield area, including the Gin and Carter garden. If you have been there before you need to go back to see how much...

Just a small area where a marker is located. A stacked cannonball marker in the middle is not labeled, so a little more information would be helpful at this site.
