Description

You'll get an inside look and actually walk along the famous Franklin battlefield where on December 1, 1864, there were over 9,500 casualties in just five hours and thousands more were wounded in battle. Hear stories about families caught in the middle of the war and the emotional and physical strains the war had on them. Walk the battleground and hear stories of the soldiers who fought and died while at the site of the conflict. Spend some time at the Carter House, which was a modest farm house that became ground zero in the historic fight between the Union and the Confederacy. Afterwards you'll get time to discover the town of Franklin on your own before heading to investigate the Carnton Plantation, ordered to be a Confederate field hospital by a Southern General.

The Civil War was an incredibly emotional and dramatic time during the country's history, and the Civil War Tour will allow you to re-live the emotion and drama from that era on this fateful day and the aftermath of the war. This is a great way for children to learn about the Civil War as well as for adults to get an in-depth and more personal look at the war and how it affected actual lives.
