You can see a great deal of the City of Franklin. You'll see what the civil war troops looked over 150 years ago this past November 30th.

This is a great little freebie. We visited several places in Franklin, for those of you with younger kids, the houses are better than the civil war tour. It was a bit much for my elementary school child. For the people that "can't find it"...More
