Carnton and McGavock Confederate Cemetery

This 1826 Antebellum mansion was used as a hospital during the Battle of Franklin, and its wood floors still show blood stains from the more than 300 Union and Confederate soldiers brought in that day. The adjacent McGavock Confederate Cemetery contains 1,500 graves, the largest private Confederate cemetery in the U.S. Today, the plantation is restored, open for public tours, and is used for private and community events.
