Walking Tour IntroductionWelcome to Fort Granger. The fort's position atop Figuers Bluff allowed the Union army to command the town of Franklin as well as the road and railroad that served Nashville. The 84th Indiana Infantry was among the regiments that improved and manned the fort. The unit arrived here from Nashville early in March 1863 and camped beyond the fort and railroad. The following month, Dr. Samuel S. Boyd, the regimental surgeon, drew this invaluable map. It shows the locations of headquarters, military and "contraband" camps, and other nearby earthworks. Boyd resigned on March 23, 1865.
