Battle of Nashville
Schofield's Jump’s Off-Line
Dec. 15, 1864


The Federal defensive line ran northeast and southwest through here. It was garrisoned by Schofield's Corps on arrival here after the Battle of Franklin, Dec 2, and later became a line of departure for the advance into support positions: Croft's Provisional Division then occupied this line in reserve.
