Rippavilla Candlelight Tour

November 25, 2018 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM


Rippavilla will host a candlelight tour in commemoration of the Battle of Spring Hill. Guests will hear re-enactors offering first-person accounts of Union and Confederate soldiers and tour the candlelit mansion.

On November 29, 1864, the Union army under the command of Major General John M. Schofield slipped past the Confederate forces in Spring Hill. The following morning, after receiving news that the Federal Army escaped his trap, Confederate Commander Lt. General John Bell Hood held a breakfast meeting at Rippavilla.

According to published research, the breakfast quickly turned into a “heated exchange” with Hood ordering his army to march to Franklin where one of the bloodiest battles in the conflict occurred later that day. Rippavilla invites you to hear the fascinating story in the antebellum home where it occurred.
Admission is $12 and purchased in Rippavilla’s Gift Shop on day of event or online ahead of time.
