The Battle of Franklin, Tennessee - The Carter House
After my grandfather's Senior Olympics games in Franklin,Tennessee , our whole family went to the Carter House. The house where one of the Civil War's bloodiest battles began. Unfortunately my camera wasn't charged enough to go on the tour, but our excellent tour guide said that there was almost 2 to 4 feet of blood in the yard of the Carter House when its family emerged from the cellar. The holes seen in the red farm house are where Confederate musket balls exited on the other side of the house. There are still cannon ball holes, musket ball holes, blood stains, and other signs of the wars presence all over the Carter's property. The tour given was terric. Our guide left nothing out so its not for those who can't take gory stories at all, but it is a great experience. Another great place to visit is the McGavock House (Carnton Plantation) on the other side of town. The McGavock House is also known as the most haunted house in Tennessee. It also has one of the county's largest private cemeteries. So, if your ever passing through the volunteer state, it would be a visit worth making at Franklin's Civil War battlefields. Enjoy!

Battle of Franklin 150th Anniversary (US Civil War)
The Battle of Franklin often called the Gettysburg of the West was one of the bloodiest battles in the bloody Civil War fought on November 30, 1864. The Confederate Army of the West led by General John B. Hood assaulted an entrenched Union army at Franklin as they waited to ford a river and get to Nashville.
What followed was 5 hours of bloody carnage as the Confederates made a frontal attack on fortified positions. Union losses were over 2000 while Confederate losses were over 6000 including six generals killed.
Hood limped on towards Nashville but really his army was crushed at Franklin and it was only a matter of time.
The 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Franklin was held November 15-16 but the second day was cancelled due to bad weather. The following footage is from the first day which recreated the attacks near the center at the Carter House where some of the fiercest fighting took place.
I had two ancestors involved in the battle on the Confederates side - my great-great grandfather and his brother. Both were wounded, my great-great grandfather having lost a leg and would have died if not for the kindness of a Franklin resident and later a Union prison guard.
