Franklin stockade fort drawing,1862

After occupying Nashville in February 1862, Union forces moved into surrounding areas such as Franklin, when they built this stockade fort before August 1862, in order to protect the railroad bridge over the Harpeth River. In 1863 a larger structure, Fort Granger, was built nearby on a larger bluff. Source: Civil War Drawings: from The Tennessee State Museum. p. 15, 1989.
