I've lived in this community for years & never knew where Winstead Hill was until last month. A nondescript right off Columbia Pike (going south) after the Columbia/Mack Hatcher intersection, you can park and walk up the winding hill to a shelter from which you can view Downtown Franklin. The last high hill south of Franklin gave the Confederate Army a clear view into downtown where the Federalists were pinned against the Harpeth River for lack of a bridge across. It was eerie looking through the binoculars (a free fixture under the shelter). I felt as if I were looking through General Hood's eyes at or close to the exact spot where he made the infamous decision to overtake the Feds, the result of which was the unimaginable loss of so much life.
