This is a really nice park, and a great place to walk around. Please be reverent as you think about the events of the Battle of Franklin. So glad there is a place to memorialize the Confederates.

You will see what the soldiers saw as they topped the hill on November 30, 1864. A bit has changed but the view is amazing and great to see!
