Our Mission


Save The Franklin Battlefield, Inc.  is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization consisting entirely of volunteers, with members nationwide and from several foreign countries, dedicated to the preservation, protection, and promotion of Civil War sites in Williamson County, Tennessee.

Since 1989, STFB has worked in close cooperation with local governments and local, state and national historical preservation organizations to raise awareness, educate, and build support for the need to save this and other significant sites.

As a result, recent polls of Williamson County voters now show strong support for public funding of a Civil War Battlefield Park in the County. Additionally, through the generous contributions of STFB members, several parcels of the Franklin Battlefield have been purchased and are now protected.

Time is of the Essence

While there have been some recent successes, there is much left to be done. Franklin and all of Williamson County currently face intense pressures for development of the few remaining undeveloped Civil War sites. We need your support to prevent the loss of what remains.  Together we can preserve these sites for our children and future generations of Americans.
