Confederate Redoubt No. 1 - Nashville, TN

Confederate Redoubt No. 1 - Nashville, TN

Tucked away in a residential neighborhood in the Green Hills area of Nashville is an undeveloped lot with significance during the Civil War Battle of Nashville. In Dec. 1864, Confederate troops built earthworks here positioned atop this hill providing a view of the state capitol and eventually the union troops as they awaited the inevitable. (if you look closely, you may be able to see some downtown buildings.)
