Civil War Trust 2017 Calendar-- Part 11, November: Franklin, Tennessee


FRANKLIN, TENN.  178 acres saved.

From poster child for the concept of "lost" battlefield to a thriving heritage tourism destination based around a growing community-supported park, Franklin's preservation renaissance has been nothing short of remarkable.

Acre by acre, preservation advocates have secured once-developed parcels at the heart of the battlefield and pursued an ambitious course of landscape restoration.
