This is our opportunity to make history. This will be our legacy.

The Battle of Franklin Trust and Franklin’s Charge recently signed a contract to save the Lovell property, a 1.6 acre tract of land immediately south of The Carter House.  The purchase price is $2.8 million and we need your help. Please click the PayPal button below to donate.  Every dollar is important so please give what you can.  All donations are tax deductible.  Help us make history as we save what many believe is the most important unprotected piece of Civil War battlefield in America.
