First-ever public tour of new Franklin battlefield reclaimed land – Loring’s Advance – set for Saturday Nov 5th at 10 a.m.

The Franklin community recently celebrated the successful acquisition of a five acre parcel known as Loring’s Advance, which sits roughly SW of the Collins Farm property (see map below). The battlefield land acquisition was procured through the hard work of Save the Franklin Battlefield (STFB) and the Civil War Trust, displaying once again that the Franklin, Tennessee preservation efforts continue to thrust our fair community as one of the leading communities in the United States that is winning in historic and battlefield preservation.

The first-ever public tour of this land will be hosted by STFB Saturday morning at 10 a.m., led by none other than our senior historic tour guide – Thomas Cartwright.

If you are interested in going , please visit the STFB site to learn the details about it; especially where to park.
