Battle Scarred

Battle Scarred

Battle Scarred is a unique exhibition commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Franklin at the Carnton Plantation.

Over 100 artifacts are on display, some of which have not been viewed together for 150 years. Incorporating artifacts, graphic elements, light and sound, the display will be the first of its kind in Franklin. Battle Scarred captures the ultimate cost of war and the importance of the Battle of Franklin as part of our national heritage.

STEP INTO THE STORY
Upon entering the exhibit, you will receive an enlistment card of a soldier who fought in the Battle of Franklin. The fate of your soldier will be revealed during the tour.

HARVEY’S TRAVELS: Children & Family Guide
A free activity book is available for children and families to enjoy with the exhibit. Follow Harvey the dog through the display, stopping at his paw prints to learn more and complete an activity related to the exhibit.

FAMILY NIGHT
An educational Family Night will take place on the third Thursday of every month during the exhibit, each with a new theme. These after-hour evenings will allow families and visitors additional time to explore and enjoy the exhibit.
