The Carter Farm office building still stands. It has evidence of hundreds of bullets hitting it from the fighting at Franklin, 30 November 1864. It is THE most battle damaged (as defined by the number of authentic bullet holes) still extant, in the United States. The Federal defensive line was placed here and faced South as the Confederate Army of Tennessee made the assault that Indian summer day in late November.
Former Carter house Director, Thomas Cartwright, gives us his insights into the action and fighting along the Union line in front of the Carter house facing south that fateful day.
