Franklin’s Charge wants to rebuild the Carter Cotton gin, looking to build on current momentum in Franklin

The Tennessean reported today that Franklin’s Charge hopes to buy more property at the corner of Columbia Ave and Cleburne St (across from the Cleburne Park) where a Dominoe’s Pizza and Four Star Market is currently.

The land purchase would give Franklin’s Charge a large enough tract of green space to rebuild the Carter Cotton Gin on virtually the exact same spot it originally stood. Some of the fiercest action during the Battle of Franklin took place around the Cotton Gin.

    This is great news! The Franklin battlefield can still be saved while it may take time by taking it back one piece at a time and restoring the historical views the best we can.
