The Western Confederacy's Last Gamble

Are you a serious Civil War buff? This is for you! A day long journey exploring Civil War sites such as Winstead Hill, the Carter House and the Carnton Cemetery in Franklin and then a visit to several key sites relating to the 1862-1865 Federal occupation of Nashville (downtown) and key sites on the Nashville battlefield- December 15-16, 1864 including Fort Negley, Belmont mansion, Redoubt Number 1, the Peace Monument, Shy's Hill and much more(if time permits) . We 'll break for lunch at the "Factory" in Franklin and head to Nashville(twenty five miles North) on the same road used by the soldiers 150 years ago.
