Battle of Franklin Trust Adds Additional Walking Tours. The Battle of Franklin Trust will offer additional walking tours to commemorate the 151st anniversary of the Battle of Franklin, which was fought on November 30, 1864. Eric A. Jacobson, CEO of The Battle of Franklin Trust, will lead two morning battlefield tours, one on Nov. 27 and one on Nov. 30. Each tour will begin at 8 a.m. at The Carter House, the site of the Federal headquarters during the battle, and last until 9:30 a.m. Guests will visit crucial spots on the battlefield and learn about pivotal moments that occurred before, during and after the battle. Tickets are $25. In addition, a special tour of the Spring Hill battlefield will be offered on Nov. 29, 3-4:30 p.m., on the anniversary of the battle there. Attendees will hear about the sharp fighting there as well as the Confederate confusion which led to the Federal army’s escape and ultimately the Battle of Franklin. Attendees will also receive one free house tour admission to either The Carter House or Carnton Plantation. Tickets are $25. Due to limited space, reservations are required for both tours. To make a reservation and payment, contact Megan Wuest at 615-794-0903.
