The Sam Davis Camp owns and maintains the historic Winstead Hill site in Franklin, Tennessee. Winstead Hill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and was the stepping off point of the Army of Tennessee in its assault on the Federal works at Franklin on November 30, 1863. The slope of Winstead Hill was also the vantage point for Genl. John Bell Hood as he observed and directed the battle.

Originally deeded to the Franklin Chapter No. 14 of the United Daughters of the Confederacy by the Walter Roberts family in 1948, title to the initial 9 1/2 acre tract passed to the Sam Davis Camp in 1982.   Shortly thereafter, an adjoining 1 1/2 acre tract was added.  Within the last few years, eight large granite memorials and several smaller plaques and markers have been placed on the hill, and the existing covered over-look with it's relief map of the battlefield has been fully rebuilt and restored.  A full-size replica field gun and a fifty-foot flag pole flying the Confederate Battle Flag greet you as you enter the paved parking area.  All in all, Winstead Hill is one of the finest Confederate memorial sites in the South.

The Winstead Hill Confederate Memorial Park is open from sunup to sundown, 365 days a year.  There is no admission charge.  The park is located in Franklin, Tennessee, on the Columbia Pike approximately two miles south of the historic Carter House.
