Here are some pictures I took of split rail fences on the Franklin battlefield. I wanted some
examples to use to when building my own fences, but I thought some of my bloggin' buddies might
be interested as well! I also included a few pictures of the Franklin, TN battlefield.
|A post split rail fence. This is located near the location of the|
|The Cotton Gin after the war.|
|Same post spilt rail fence. These are fairly high and the top|
of the fence is mid-chest high.
|Showing some curvature in the fence line.|
|One of my 28mm fences with some Union boys defending it.|
|A split rail fence near Winstead Hill. These could be easily built|
on rocky / rough ground since they didn't require post holes.
