We went on the 11/7/22 tour. It started with our driver, he was amazing how he could drive, talk the entire time telling us names, dates and background of generals and all the people involved in the Franklin Battle. When we got to the Carnton home, that woman was so knowledgeable again extremely detailed on the home's residents background, but also the battle that went on around the home and the cemetery on site. Finally, the guy that gave our tour at the Carter Home was fantastic, so detailed with names, dates he told the stories as if you were there witnessing the battles and the emotions of the people in the basement of the Carter home while the 5-hour battle was going on outside the home. When we walked into the Carter Farm Office at the end of the tour and saw the bullet holes in the wall it brought the whole battle into perspective and had an immediate emotional effect on the magnitude of the battle. The lady at the Lotz home was OK as well. To summarize, it was the best narrated tour, the most knowledgeable guides I've ever experienced and over all the best tour ever taken. Excellent job by all.

Excellent historical information re the battle of Franklin and role that these homes and families played. Tour guide at Carnton house was excellent and the guide at Carter house very good. The guide at Lotz house was disappointing but the house and history was interesting.

A great and valuable experience. Carnton and Carter House sections of the tour were a lot better than the Lotz House section.

We love history and travel every year to historical sites. We learned a lot about the Franklin battle and the families directly involved. We were extremely impressed with Eric the Carter House. Our history and these places MUST be preserved so future generations to understand how we became the USA.
