Civil War Sites

The Land Trust has partnered with The Heritage Foundation of Franklin & Williamson County, Franklin’s Charge, the Battle of Nashville Preservation Society, Save the Franklin Battlefield, the State of Tennessee and many private landowners to protect strategic Civil War battle sites throughout the state.

This includes battlefield remnants in Franklin, New Johnsonville and Thompson’s Station as well as signaling stations and redoubts in Nashville and Franklin.

Additionally, The Land Trust worked in partnership with the Civil War Trust and Friends of Johnsonville State Historic Park to purchase 20 acres that form the viewshed from the state-of-the-art visitor’s center at the park. The property, which was being cleared for development prior to the purchase, overlooks the site of the Battle of Johnsonville.
