When I approached the outbuilding on the old Fountain Carter farm last Friday morning, my expectations were low for high-quality photography.  I had arrived well before the house and outbuildings at this important Battle of Franklin (Tenn.) site were open for tours, leaving me no opportunity for a prime inside photos. No matter. I pressed my iPhone 8 flush against a window pane of the former Carter farm office and got this surprising result. With light streaming in from the outside, the bullet holes lit up like constellations in the night sky -- further evidence of a horrific battle of Nov. 30, 1864.
