Manning the Fort

the battery used the cannons in combat during a Franklin reconnaissance raid by Confederate Gens. Nathan B. Forrest and Earl Van Dorn. By May, Fort Granger contained 6 large siege guns (including two 24-pounder howitzers) and 24 smaller field cannon. On June 4-5 the guns defended against Confederate cavalry on the outskirts of town.

By mid-1863, Rosecrans had moved much of his army to Tullahoma. Detached regiments continued to man the fort from June 1863 to May 1865. During the Battle of Franklin on November 30, 1864, Union Gen. John M. Schofield observed the fighting from Fort Granger.
