In October of 1864 when Fort Leavenworth and the city of Leavenworth were threatened by Confederate forces under General Sterling Price, fortifications were constructed on the crest of the ridge to the west. These works were armed with heavy siege guns, and were manned by a hastily gathered composite force including companies of the Seventh Kansas Militia, discharged veterans, convalescents, and civilian employees. The fortifications were named Fort Sully in honor of General Alfred Sully, a distinguished Regular soldier of the period.
