I believe those who have lost their freedom are those who truly understand what it means to be free. This is the interior of a restored slave cabin on the grounds of Carnton Plantation in Franklin Tennessee. I am certain it did not look quite so charming to those who had to call it home.

    Good tonal work Karen. Love these old houses showing how people used to live.

  • Thank you! It used to be a fourth grade field trip and I always made sure I was one of the moms to go along and help…it’s one of my favorite places!

    Beautiful! With both of us living in Tennessee, we probably take pictures of the same things. I want to check out this place.

  • Thank you so very much! I took this in Franklin ( site of the Civil War Battle…The Battle of Franklin) at the Carnton Plantation…love this place! Very historic…has the largest privately owned Civil War cemetery in the US. And..still has slave cabins, which is where I took this photo. And! The gardens are to die for…gorgeous English gardens. Anyway…I bet you would love it! If you ever find yourself around Nashville I would love to show you around! Thanks again!!
