Battle of Nashville
Schofield's Assault
Dec. 16, 1864


The Federal XXIII Corps attacked southeastward from positions about 3/4 mile west. Coordinating with the attack of Smith's XVI Corps, and assisted by pressure by Wilson's encircling cavalry from the south, its action brought about the final collapse of Hood's defenses.
