Collins Farm (Attack on the Union Left)
418 Lewisburg Ave.
Franklin, TN 37064
On the afternoon of November 30, 1864, elements of Confederate Gen. William W. Loring's division rushed across the ground in front of you during the Battle of Franklin to attack the Federal left flank here. Union artillery fire from here and from Fort Granger to your right across the river raked Loring's men as they approached, and the obstacle of the Harpeth River forced them to shift across the railroad. Jammed together in overlapping ranks, the Confederates suffered enormous losses.
