Carnton Plantation, Franklin, TN.
Built in 1826, the McGavock family home was witness to one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. The Battle of Franklin, November 30, 1864 claimed 9,500 soldiers killed or wounded. Four deceased Confederate Generals lay on Carnton’s back porch. The McGavock family designated two acres of their land for burial of nearly 1,500 Confederate soldiers. It is the largest privately owned military cemetery in the Nation.
Carnton is the setting for the novel, Widow of the South by Robert Hicks, an historic account of this era. Both Carter House and Carnton are open daily for tours.
I have hand crafted a ceramic reproduction of Carnton Plantation House. Approx 6″ X 8,” they are ready to hang on your wall. As I have created each one individually, they are all signed and numbered..Each is hand glazed and kiln fired twice.
I welcome your questions, comments, and suggestions. Please let me know if you are interested in a unique replica of your home or place of special interest to you.
