Stone entrance gate of Fort Negley

Fort Negley

Fort Negley, designed by Captain James St. Clair Morton and named for Union Post Commander Brigadier General James S. Negley, represents the effects of war and sudden occupation, the heartbreak of the Battle of Nashville and the legacy of the Depression-era WPA. As the largest inland stone fortification built during the Civil War it stood as the centerpiece of Union occupied Nashville. Fort Negley covers four acres and measures 600 feet long by 300 feet wide.

Nashville's strategic location on the Cumberland River and networks of turnpikes and railroads made the city a valuable asset to both the Union and Confederate armies.

Fort Negley was never directly attacked during the Civil War though its artillery operated by the 12th Indiana Light Artillery aided in driving off General Hood's Confederate troops during the battle of Nashville, December 15 and 16 of 1864. The artillery was upgraded in 1864 to include a 30-pound Parrot Gun.

Interpretive panels explaining multiple aspects of Fort Negley and commemorative plaques are installed throughout the park to enjoy during the self guided walking tour.

The Fort Negley Visitors Center includes artifacts, information and features films on Fort Negley and the surrender of Nashville. Interactive touch screen displays highlight information of occupied Nashville and Fort Negley. In the Center there is access to the “Civil War Soldier and Sailor System”. Through this database you can search for relatives possibly having served in the Union or Confederate Armies.
