A large Federal earthwork was located back of Vine Avenue between Gay and Walnut Streets when General James Longstreet besieged Knoxville, Nov. 17-Dec. 4, 1863. The Federal defense line ran along this ridge from Fort Hill, (Surrey St. and Saxton Ave.) 2400 yards east, to Fort Sanders, (17th St. and Laurel Ave.) 1400 yards west. Ten forts crowned these heights, five east and four west of this point.
