Shells from Fort GrangerAbout one mile (1.6 km) directly north of you stands Fort Granger, a large earthen fortification that provided the Union army a commanding view over much of this area. Built in the spring of 1863, Fort Granger sat on top of Figuers' Bluff overlooking the Harpeth River and the town of Franklin. Its earthen walls encompassed twelve acres (24,000 square meters) and served as a main base of Union operations in the area through 1863. Small garrisons held the fort through 1864.
