Following in Their Footsteps

This walkway traces the route that the men of Confederate Gen. Thomas M. Scott's brigade took in the Battle of Franklin. Read below to see what it was like then and to follow in their footsteps
Distance to Union Lines: 1,200 yards (1,143 m)
Local Time: 4:20 pm, November 30, 1864

At this point Scott's brigade entered the range of case-shot shells from Union smoothbore artillery in the defenses ahead of you. Loaded with scores of lead spheres, the shells acted like large grenades as they burst overhead. In this ordeal the men of Scott's brigade were not alone.

To your front and left marched Gen. Winfield S. Featherston's brigade, with all of its six regiments and one battalion hailing from Mississippi. Directly behind you were Gen. John Adams and his six infantry regiments, also from Mississippi.

After a few more minutes passed, Adams' men saw him for the last time. Adams had a full view of the tremendous losses that Scott's and Featherston's men were suffering, and he maneuvered his brigade to your left to find a better path into the Union lines. He did not find it and fell in the process.
