Battle of Nashville
Taking of Redoubt No. 5
Dec. 15, 1864


Hood's Redoubt NO.5 was on this hill. Couch's division of the XXIII Corps, sweeping to the south of the route of Smith's XVI, captured it and the hills to the east late in the afternoon. Wilson's cavalry, crossing the highway about 2 miles south, advanced rapidly eastward, flanking the Confederate defenses.
