Franklin TN - Carnton Plantation - November 28, 29 and 30 are BLUE AND GRAY DAYS

Reenactments and remembrances take place this time of the year on the grounds of the Carnton Plantation in Franklin TN.  The old house was used as a hospital and later the grounds became the cemetery for one the last and one of the most costly battles in human lives and injury of the Civil War.  

The battle took place in 1864 and in the short span of 5 hours there were more lives lost than the two days of fighting at Shiloh.  In all the South took on 6,252 casualties 1,750 resulting in death. The North forces ended in retreat with loss of 189 lives and 1033 wounded.  Additionally 6 generals were mortally wounded in the battle.

Today the Carnton Plantation hosts these commemorative events to honor those who fought so bravely on both sides.  It is open year around for tours and special events, including summer concerts in the gardens and weddings.  Enjoy today's peaceful slides below.

Mike I love the building in the background of your profile picture.  Thanks for this little bit of history even though it is alittle bit sad.  We have re-enactments in this area also every so often.  I think they are an important part of history and they should always continue.

Mike, there is a great deal of history in Franklin.  The local historical societies have done a wonderful job of preserving and commemorating the towns heritage.
