Linking with other hills south of the river, this Union position was a major factor in the defense of Knoxville. Occupied on Nov.1, 1863, by the 2nd Brig. (Col. Daniel Cameron), 3rd Div. XXIII corps, its gunfire broke up an attempt on Nov. 15-16 by Confederate cavalry which had come via Sweetwater and Maryville to seize these heights in Longstreet's bid to capture the city.
