During the Battle of Franklin this Confederate division composed of three brigade commanded by Brig. Gens. Winfield Scott Featherston, Thomas Moore Scott,and John Adams, swept past Carnton as it approached the Federal line just after 4 p.m. on November 30, 1864. Subjected to artillery fire in this area, Loring's Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana troops took casualties with each step as they closed upon the Federal works. Carnton was quickly taken over as Loring's field hospital and the first wounded were taken into the house around sunset. By the time the battle ended around 9 p.m. Gen. Adams was dead, Gen. Scott was wounded,seven of Loring's sixteen regimental commanders were wounded or dying, and nearly 1,000 of his 3,500 men were casualties. Today, many of these fallen soldiers rest in the nearby McGavock Confederate Cemetery.
