September 19, 2008 - Franklin, Tennesee. Six generals were mortally wounded or killed during the battle of Franklin. This photo shows the back side of an outbulding at the Carter House, downtown Franklin pocked with too many bullet holes for me to count. We spent the morning touring the Confederate Cemetery and grounds at Carnton Plantation, then drove to the Carter House. We could have ordered a pizza and had lunch in the car within a few hundred feet of the sites commererating the wounding or death of several of the dead generals.
