Rest Haven Cemetery

Did you know that scores of Confederate veterans and a handful of Union veterans are buried in Rest Haven Cemetery, near downtown Franklin? Learn about these brave men through an intimate walk through the cemetery. Visit Tod Carter’s grave site.

I have developed profiles on every soldier buried in Rest Haven. I have also developed an extensive knowledge of Franklin’s unknown Civil War soldier (and re-burial), who is also buried in Rest Haven.

I have been leading tours of Civil War Franklin sites for over fifteen years. If you would like to walk around through cemetery with me and learn more about the soldiers buried there, then contact me for a tour. Tours are typically 60-90 minutes. Rest Haven tours are $35 per person, weather permitting. Group prices are available.
