Free images of World Travel - Carnton Plantation

 



Carnton Historic Plantation House and Museum 

Franklin,  Williamson County, Tennessee
Posted with permission from the Plantation.

From an architectural standpoint, Carnton is a red brick Federal style 11-room residence completed in 1826 using slave labour.  A central two-story pedimented portico in the Greek Revival-style was added in 1847.

Built by the former mayor of Nashville, Randal McGavock (1768-1843), Carnton was witness to one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War - the Battle of Franklin.  On November 30th, 1864, the McGavock family saw soldiers marching toward the town of Franklin.  There was a five hour battle between the Confederates and the Federals that lasted about five hours, but is said to have been the bloodiest of the Civil War.  9,500 soldiers were either killed, wounded, captured or missing of which 7,000 were Confederate soldiers.  

The Carnton home served as the largest field hospital for hundreds of wounded and dying Confederate soldiers. 

If you visit Carnton, and I recommend highly that you do, you can see traces of blood still in the floorboards of the rooms in which doctors performed amputations of wounded limbs.  The maimed and dying soldiers soldiers filled every room, the staircase, back porch and yard.

John and Carrie McGavock dedicated two acres of land beside their private family cemetery as the final resting place for nearly 1,500 Confederate soldiers killed during the Battle.

Carnton Plantation  is said to be one of the most haunted places in the US.  Some have witnessed the spirits of Confederate soldiers, the sound of galloping horses, the smell of gunpowder as well as visions of Carrie McGavock's spirit.

McGavock Confederate Cemetery

John McGavock  and his family donated two acres of land adjoining his family graveyard as a final resting place for the soldiers.   In 1866, a committee was formed and the bodies of Confederate soldiers buried elsewhere, were moved here.  

The graves are arranged according to the states from which the soldiers came.  The original wooden headboards were replaced with the current markers in 1890.  Further restorations to the Cemetery took place from 1990-1996 which included repairs to the markers, the iron fence, gate and grounds.  McGavock Cemetery is the largest privately owned military cemetery in the US.

These photographs have been posted with the utmost respect for the deceased.  Please  use your discretion when using these images - give the fallen soldiers resting beneath the headstones the dignity that  they deserve.

Travel

To travel is to journey - especially to a distant
 or unfamiliar place.

If I had the money, I'd spend my life roaming the earth and learning about new cultures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, 
and narrow-mindedness,
and many of our people
 need it sorely 
on these accounts.  
Broad, wholesome, charitable views 
of men and things 
cannot be acquired 
by vegetating 
in one little corner 
of the earth 
all one's lifetime."

~ Mark Twain ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

"The world is a book
 and those 
who do not travel 
read only one page."

~ Augustine of Hippo ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


"Do not follow 
where the path 
may lead.  Go instead 
where there is no path
 and leave a trail."


~ Ralph Waldo 
Emerson ~
