  • Nice work! That's correct!
    Answer:

    Shy's Hill.  The Union army was drawn up along the outskirts of Franklin, entrenched behind breastworks that had been partially constructed from timber pulled from the Carter Cotton Gin.  The Confederates crossed Carnton Plantation and pierced the blue line near the Carter House.  For almost five hours, the Carter property was the scene of desperate close-range combat that left thousands dead or wounded.  Captain Tod Carter, the middle child of the Carter family and an assistant quartermaster in Hood's army, was killed only five hundred feet from his boyhood home.
