Saving History Saturday: 2.3 Acres Saved At Franklin Battlefield

In August 2020, The Battle of Franklin Trust, Save the Franklin Battlefield, Friends of Franklin Parks, and American Battlefield Trust partnered to purchase another piece of important hallowed ground in Tennessee. $107,500 saved the 2.3 acre parcel which was part of Carnton plantation during 1864 and saw heavy fighting during the battle.

    I was there once in 1997 and there wasn’t much there but the Carter House, Carnton Plantation and McGavock Cemetery, so I can’t wait to revisit Franklin Battlefield to see what has been added.

    The preservation groups have done a magnificent job of bringing Franklin battlefield back from the dead. I’m eager to see that.
