A few weeks ago my mom visited Carnton Plantation in Franklin, TN. She visited there because we had both read the book Widow of the South by Robert Hicks. The setting for the book is Carnton Plantation. If you have not read the book it is a wonderful read. My book club read it 5 years ago and it was voted the best book we read that year. Here are a few of the pictures my mom took that I wanted to share with all of you.
This is a picture of the back of the house. This house served as a field hospital following the Battle of Franklin on November 30, 1864.
The following pictures are of the Confederate Cemetery on the grounds.
If you are looking for a great read, look no more. This is a fabulous book and the story will touch your heart. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog today. Hope all of you have a great weekend.
