Cotton Gin Park

Cotton Gin Park

This one acre historic park is a monument to the assault on the Cotton Gin during the Battle of Franklin.

This park was the site of important events during the Battle of Franklin on November 30, 1864 and efforts are underway by preservation groups such as Franklin's Charge to expand the park and rebuild historic structures. They hope to complete the memorial park in time for the sesquicentennial of the battle in 2014.

We hope you enjoy our work.
