In Feb. 1863, General Rosecrans, in command of the Federal troops in middle Tennessee, ordered Major General Gordon Granger to fortify Franklin. During Hood’s attack on Nov. 30, 1864, artillery fire from this fort slammed into the Confederate right flank. The fort was abandoned when the Federals retreated toward Nashville during the night, but was reoccupied two weeks later as Hood’s defeated army withdrew from Tennessee. Open daily. Admission is free.
