Battle of Nashville
Assault on Montgomery Hill
Dec. 15, 1864


500 yards east of here, Maj. Gen. T.J. Wood led an assault by his IV Corps against the Confederate skirmish line on the hill, eventually carrying it. Attacking the main line about 600 yards south, Wood was unable to take it by direct assault, the divisions of Loring and Walthall holding fast until the XVI Corps, moving past their left, forced withdrawal.
