Battlefield Tours


Tuesday through Saturday at 11:00 am

Tickets: $25

Join us for a comprehensive walking tour of the Franklin battlefield. The tour focuses on many elements of the Battle of Franklin, explaining why it occurred, the arrival of the Federal and Confederate armies, and details of what became known as one of the greatest single assaults of the Civil War. The tour will take you to at least six locations on the field where crucial portions of the battle unfolded, from the Confederate breakthrough to the Federal defensive stand and counterassault. Walk along the Federal line, see the location of the former Carter cotton gin, visit the spot where Gen. Patrick Cleburne was killed, and see battlefield reclamation in progress.

Please arrive at Carter House Visitor Center at least 15 minutes prior to tour time. Be aware this tour does not include a tour of Carter House. That ticket must be purchased separately. The Battlefield Tour lasts approximately 90 minutes and takes place entirely outdoors. Please plan accordingly.

Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. Online ticket sales end 24 hours before scheduled tour, however walk-ins are welcome.
