The exact location will be the 600 acres behind Rippavilla Plantation. This plantation was the site of Hoods Army before they marched to Franklin on November 30, 1864. We will be on some the actual land on which Cleburne’s men were encamped.

After the Battle of Stone's River, the Union Army maintained camp along a line extending from Readyville, through Murfreesboro and Triune, and on to Franklin. With the Union infantry posted near Triune and Nolensville, the citizens of Nolensville were ideal "advisors" to Coleman’s Scouts concerning Union reinforcements and movements. Hit and run raids by both sides continued with noteworthy engagements at Brentwood, Thompson's Station, Triune, Spring Hill, and Franklin as both armies actively probed to learn the location and strength of their foe.
