The Tennessee Wraith Chasers of Travel Channel’s ‘Haunted Live’ Investigate the Lotz House in Franklin, Tennessee, a Civil War Location Still Plagued by the Past
Haunted Live “10-5-18” – Premieres Friday, October 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT
The Tennessee Wraith Chasers head to the Lotz House in historic Franklin, Tennessee. Johann Lotz emigrated from Germany to America in hopes of finding wealth in the land of prosperity. The master carpenter built his dream home, the Lotz House, to display his skill to prospective clients. Unfortunately, the dream soon crumbled. His twin children died after drinking from a well poisoned by Union troops. Two years later, the house was caught in the middle of the Battle of Franklin. Nearly 10,000 men died in the bloodiest five hours of the Civil War. After hiding in a neighbor’s basement, the family was forced to walk back to their battered home, stepping the whole way on the dead bodies that covered the ground. The home then became a hospital, with countless more dying inside its walls — blood still stains the floors. Apparitions are often seen in windows, items are constantly moved around the house and the sounds of battle drums are heard at night. Is it the spirits of men who died in battle or the ghosts of a family traumatized by war?
