FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) _ Plans to turn a Civil War site into a park in Middle Tennessee are moving forward.
 
The Tennessean reports park supporters are now aiming to clear debris from the area where the Battle of Franklin took place so that a team of archaeologists can search the site for artifacts and learn more about the history of the property.
 
The move comes after the project remained stalled for months due to a dispute over moving a historic home from the property.
 
Supporters want to build a 20-acre Civil War park at the location. They hope the upcoming 150th anniversary of the battle will give the project more momentum.
