Event Description

On November 30, The Battle of Franklin Trust will once again display luminaries at dusk to honor the casualties inflicted during the Battle of Franklin 153 years ago.

Ten thousand luminaries are laid out to represent the 10,000 casualties from the Battle of Franklin in 1864.

The Illumination will be held at The Carter Hill Battlefield Park. Names of the Battle’s casualties will be read aloud throughout the ceremony, and visitors are invited to walk throughout the luminaries.
Carnton Plantation and The Carter House will be open to the public for free walk-through tours from 5-7 p.m.
This year’s luminaries will be placed on both sides of Columbia Pike along the Federal line, which the Confederates briefly broke through and where so many of the battle’s casualties occurred.
This event is free to the public.
