Franklin, Tennessee

Carnton Mansion
1345 Carnton Lane

The house was used as a hospital after the battle of Franklin during the Civil War, November 30, 1864. There were 5 Confederate generals laid out dead on the front porch of this old mansion. The lady of the house, Caroline Winder McGavock, assisted in the medical attention given to the soldiers that were taken there. She has been spotted numerous times at various places in the house, usually standing in an upstairs window at night. There also has been an officer on horseback seen riding through the fields around the house. This officer has no boots. History tells us that an officer gave his boots to a bare-foot soldier.
