I'm one who likes to see the past noted instead of buried or forgotten. Our opinions change about what is right, but it does not change the cost for people caught up in the events of the day. And many died in the process.

This is a small place that you can cover in an hour or less. We live near here and went to walk around the park and to read the memorials. It gives you great information on the Battle of Franklin during the Civil War.

Nice quiet park with Monuments for the CSA states and lost generals. Also a nice bronze relief map of the battle for Franklin.

A great self guided tour in a beautiful park. Lots of history. Nice walking path. We brought a lunch and blanket and ate in the field as deer ran by.

Great stop, all part of the civil war trail. Once you visit the Lotz house and Carter house you can stop here see and understand how history happened

This sight is one that helps you understand where the Confederates stood on the battle of Franklin. You need to visit this after Carter house.

The United States, including the old Confederate States, is far better off now without slavery - but one of the tragedies of war is that these brave men are still stigmatized and subjected to dishonor because of it. May their souls rest in peace, unaware...More
