About the Battlefield Tour beginning from Carnton

Join us for a comprehensive walking tour of the Eastern Flank 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 a number of locations on the field where crucial portions of the battle unfolded, from the Confederate attack to the devastating impact of the Federal artillery. Walk among the open fields and see the landscape that pushed Loring’s Division of the Confederate army into a dangerous railroad cut where they faced tremendous fire from the Federal main line.
