For years, The Battle of Franklin Trust has been collecting Descendant Forms in an effort to preserve, understand, and interpret the story of a people forever impacted by the American Civil War. If your ancestor has a connection to the story of the Carters, McGavocks, Battle of Franklin, or the town of Franklin itself, we want to hear from you!

Due to time constraints, we do not not generally respond to this form. If you have any questions or would like to share additional information, please email us at Thank you!
