Winstead Hill


From this knoll two miles south of Franklin, General Hood, on November 30, 1864, surveyed with field glasses, the fortified positions of Federal troops who occupied Franklin. His decision to attack began one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War, The Battle Of Franklin.

This view is looking North towards the city of Franklin.

Winstead Hill is named for Samuel Winstead, whose tomb is on the North side of the hill.
