In a town like Franklin, TN most of the houses were used as hospitals during and after the Battle of Franklin in the late fall of 1854. Several of these private homes are still private homes. Of course, all churches in town were also used. Are you looking for certain types of institutional buildings? I'm sure it will be true in other towns and cities that when they were a battle site, most homes and churches were used to care for the wounded. Perhaps you didn't mean to include "houses?" Also, many such homes and churches have been restored or remodeled. Are you including those? Purpose?
