Field Trip

We have been having Read Across America this week. We started our week off with a field trip to the Battle Of Franklin, tour of the Carter Home. Isaac and Sarah have been studying the Civil War so we thought this would be a great place to visit. We plan on going again and visiting the Carnton Home. 
For lunch we stopped at Burger King. 
Here is our burger Queen! 
For a treat we stopped by Krispy Kreme. Then it was 15 minutes to the Carter Home. 
Here are the kids out back of the home. Standing in front of the slave cabin. It was not an original from that farm. When the Confederate army took over the farm for a base they tore down the original slave cabins and used the lumber for building a blockade. 
Here is a picture of the back of the Carter home. The smaller building directly in back of the home was the kitchen. This was a very informative tour. Bryan is a history guy and he really enjoyed the tour and information.
