In November of 1864, the Plantation witnessed an integral Battle of Franklin, during the Civil War. It was a devastating battle for the South. Over 1,750 Confederate soldiers were buried on the property, making it the largest graveyard in the south. Bloodstains are still visible in several rooms, with the heaviest in the children’s bedroom which served as the operating room.
