Carnton Plantation- Franklin Tennessee

Our third and final house to visit, in a one day historic home marathon, was the Carnton Plantation.

Just like the other homes we visited, this one is jam packed with history.  It is also stained with figurative and literal blood.  One room is set up showing some of the surgical tools used at the time.

There is a Confederate Cemetery on the grounds, with soldiers grouped by the state they are from.  A large tree by the home still stands, and it was there on the day of the Battle.

Physically, this was the most spectacular house on our tour. 

This was, as I said before, a lot of historic home touring in one day!  And, this home was easily the most crowded home tour we toured.  We noticed some very restless kids on this one, which was understandable.  Still, it was fun seeing three homes, all connected by the Battle of Franklin, all in one day.
