Fort Harrison - 1864

The day after Federals captured Fort Harrison, Robert E. Lee personally directed savage Confederate counterattacks against this section of earthworks. Union forces had already closed and strengthened the rear of the fort.

Armed with new repeating rifles, the Union troops held their ground. In the space of three hours they repulsed three Confederate assaults.
