Battle of Nashville
Redoubt No. 1
Dec. 15, 1864


Stewart's Confederate Corps held this salient of the left of Hood's defenses. A thin infantry line ran south behind a stone wall on the east side of the pike. After the routing of Ector's Brigade on Harding Pike and successive overrunning of Redoubts 3, 4 & 5 to the south, Stewart's position was flanked; he withdrew southeast toward Granny White Pike.
