Civil War Trust

Quiz Question Image
  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    Franklin.  After failing to stop Maj. Gen. John Schofield's retreating army at Spring Hill, Confederate General John Bell Hood directed his Army of Tennessee to frontally attack the entrenched Federal lines around Franklin, Tennessee.  The 5 hours of fighting at Franklin proved to be some of the bloodiest of the entire Civil War.  Six Confederate generals, including States Rights Gist and Patrick Cleburne, were killed in the fighting.

    Did you Know?  In 2005, the Civil War Trust helped acquire a section of the battlefield where Patrick Cleburne was killed.  The former Pizza Hut was converted to a battlefield park.
