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!
