Battle of Franklin Trust to host Bootleggers Bash
The Battle of Franklin Trust will once again take a trip into prohibition-era Tennessee as it hosts Bootlegger’s Bash, Saturday, Aug. 10, 6:30-10:30 p.m.
The third annual event at Carnton Plantation is inspired by Williamson County’s unique history of bootlegging. Guests are invited to enjoy a Collier and McKeel whiskey tasting, a delicious southern meal, and old-time music and dancing.
The Bootlegger’s Bash menu will feature a pig roast, fried chicken, and an array of side dishes all paired with a selection of whiskey, wine and beer. Music will be provided by old-time string band, Hogslop, who will also be teaching traditional Southern-style square dancing.
Tickets are $65 or $120 per couple, and are available on the events page at www.battleoffranklintrust.org. The Bootlegger’s Bash is presented by the Battle of Franklin Trust and sponsors include Music City Tents & Events, Stites & Harbison and Franklin Synergy Bank. Stacey Watson and Marianne Schroer are co-chairing the event.
The Battle of Franklin Trust is a 501 (c) 3 management corporation acting on behalf of Franklin’s battlefield sites to contribute to a greater understanding and enrich the visitor experience of the Nov. 30, 1864 battle.
