Plantation Homes of Franklin Tennessee

While in Franklin Tennessee hubby and I had the opportunity to visit four Plantation Homes.  
 These homes were affected by the Civil War.
 You see Franklin Tennessee experienced one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War fought right here on the soil of these beautiful homes.
 These home were turned into hospitals and housed many wounded and dying soldiers from both the North and the South.
 Here is the graveyard on the Plantations property.
There are only soldiers buried on this 2 acre plot.  
It is quite an experience seeing inside these homes and hearing of the lives these people lived.  If you ever have a chance, visit this area of our Country, you will get quite a history lesson.
