From visiting the battlefield of Franklin to the Carter House and Carnton Plantation, the Civil War historical tour offers an in-depth look into both the Civil War and the prevailing culture of the Tennessee area during the mid 19th century.

Your day starts with a hotel pick to be transported by bus to the tour location. Once there you will 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.

When you take the Civil War Tour, you will visit some of the most famous Civil War landmarks in the area and hear little known stories about the sites. Your exciting look back in history includes a visit to the famous Franklin battlefield, the historic Carter House, and the Carnton Plantation. The tour gives you an inside glimpse of the area's culture ranging for pre-Civil War times through the end of the war. You can actually walk along the battlefield where it is estimated that hundreds of men lost their lives 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.

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.

"I throughly enjoyed this tour"
I throughly enjoyed this tour. The driver was informative in his descriptions of what we would be seeing. Each of the guides at the historical sites were informative and knowledgeable. A change that could be incorporate, lunch in downtown franklin instead of the strip mall, would have allowed more choice of where to eat and the opportunity to visit the town square, historical downtown franklin.
