Battle of Nashville
Outer Federal Defenses
Dec. 2, 1864


Near here, the interior defensive lines ran southwest to cross Harding Pike; the total length of these works was about 7 miles. First garrisoned by Wood's IV Corps, it was occupied Dec. 15 by Donaldson's Division of Quarter-master employees. Part of the breastworks can be seen on Vanderbilt campus, 300 yards west.
