This cemetery is dedicated to the confederate soldiers that lost their lives at the franklin battle of the civil war. It was amazing to see how many fought and died from the numerous states and all of the unknown soldiers. It is a place to remember those that fought for everything we have now.

I would recommend visiting this plantation and cemetery. The home is well maintained the group that owns the grounds are upgrading to make the area visitor friendly and preserve the history. The cemetery is hopefully on the to-do-list; it is not bad but could use some loving care.

To see the soldiers buried within their state groupings was beautiful. To see how many remain "unknown" to this day, truly sad and heart breaking. The Cemetery is well cared for and a place to sit and reflect on the sacrifices of war.

The cemetery is well maintained and if you don't have a lump in your throat walking through it, there is something wrong with you! So glad we made the trip to see it.
