Special 149th Anniversary Walking Tour Announced “Crossfire on the Franklin Battlefield” Melee, Murder & Mayhem


Franklin, Tenn. – (10/22/13)  Thomas Cartwright is excited to announce he has teamed up with fellow historian and long-time tour guide John Marler for a very special walking battlefield tour on this year’s 149th anniversary of the Battle of Franklin called “Crossfire on the Battlefield.”

According to Thomas and John, what will make this tour different from others is that they will offer personal accounts of both Confederate and Federal viewpoints throughout the tour.

Thomas will give the perspective of the Confederates while John will counterpoint the Federal viewpoint.  This tour promises to be very face-paced while covering ground zero of the battle with a focus on individual soldiers.

According to  Cartwright, “This is about the common soldier, both Blue and Gray, all Americans who gave everything they had, including their lives.”

This very special tour is limited to only fifty guests at $75 per person.  The tour will begin at the Lotz House at 10:30 a.m. and last until 2:30 p.m. on November 30.

Another aspect of this unique tour is each participant will be given a dog tag representing a soldier that fought at the Battle of Franklin (both Southern and Northern) at the beginning of the tour.   And  the course of the tour, Thomas and John will tell guests the fate of their soldier.  Guests will also receive a battlefield map along with a continental breakfast.

For more information and to make reservations call 615-790-7190 or email Thomas Cartwright at battlefieldtours@lotzhouse.com.
