The Barber Motorsports Park is the nicest, most elegant race track I have ever visited. You get the feeling you are entering a luxury resort as you drive up to the museum and track. The museum is probably as big as the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC.

I stopped at the Battle of Franklin, TN on my way from Bham to Lexington. The charming town has grown and absorbed much of the battlefield, but there was a nice planation home and a portion of the east flank of the battlefield preserved for viewing. The Battles of Franklin and nearby Nashville were some of the bloodiest of the war and resulted in utter destruction of the rebel armies under General Hood.
