Battle of Nashville
Cheatham's Line
Dec. 15, 1864


Holding a line running N.E. and S.W. and with its right on the N.C. & St. L. R.R. at Rains' Cut, Cheatham's Confederate Corps stood off the attacks of Steedman's brigades. Part of Cheatham's Corps was moved to the support of Stewart's life late in the afternoon: collapse of the left wing forced Cheatham's withdrawal southward during the night.
