154th Anniversary of the Battle of Franklin

November 30, 2018

On Friday, November 30, 2018, The Battle of Franklin Trust will once again display luminaries at dusk to honor the 10,000 casualties inflicted during the Battle of Franklin 154 years ago.

The illumination will take place on the battlefield adjacent to Carnton. Join us for a ceremony at 4:00 pm, then walk-through and engage with historical interpreters inside Carnton and Carter House from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

This event is free to the public.
