Located 2 miles south of Franklin on Columbia Pike (Hwy 31), the Confederate Memorial Park at Winstead Hill is the location of Confederate General John Bell Hood’s headquarters during the Battle of Franklin fought in the evening hours of November 30, 1864.
The Confederate Army of Tennessee formed at the foot of Winstead Hill and stepped off at
4 p.m. to begin the march northward to attack the Federal earthworks south of Franklin in one of the bloodiest battles of the war.
The property, owned by the Sons of the Confederate Veterans, is the home for 14 monuments and 4 metal plaques for individuals and states with troops or individuals who participated in the Battles of Franklin, including the April 1863 battle.
The park is open 365 days a year from dawn to dusk. There is no admission fee but donations are greatly appreciated for maintenance.
