We've been to Nashville quite a few times, usually around the first week in November for the CMA awards. It was 2005, we arrived in Nashville the day before we had to work, so we could run around and see things. We went to Franklin which is connected to Nashville like Nampa is connected to Boise.
The Battle of Franklin, during the Civil War was a huge one. Thousands on each side would lose their lives.

The Carnton Plantation was where the Confederate Troops made their hospital. By nightfall over 300 wounded Confederate soldiers were brought to the mansion to have surgery. The Carnton Mansion is what's called a "Mirror Mansion," it had two sides with a huge hallway down the middle. Each side was just like the other, giving it the mirror effect.
We arrived in time to take the last tour of the day.
