    We're supposed to get better weather tomorrow, but for Nashville, snow and really cold temps are rare. Love the pics!
    Sadly, though, there was a lot of suffering leading up to the battle due to the cold, ice and snow. Sam Watkins describes it very poetically in his memoirs. Hood ordered no fires be built because the Confederates were camped within range of the guns of Fort Negley.

    In an ironic twist, Edmund Winchester Rucker is buried in Oak Hills Cemetery in Birmingham, Alabama just below the GAR section. Also, Fort Rucker (where the military trains it's helicopter pilots) is named after him.

    Readers kept telling me how funny they thought the name was I made up for a road - Granny White. I finally made a post about the history of the road. I can tell that was this weekend. :wink:

    Sadly the stone wall is gone and notice the new houses being built.

    I heard The History Channel will be airing the Battle of Nashville tomorrow night (Wednesday). I don't have cable so won't catch it but figured some of you do.

    So much development. This is why I limited myself to Fort Negley.

    The TN State Museum and TN War Museum (a branch of the latter) are worth visiting.

    Luckily it was Sunday morning and 6 degrees outside. So not much traffic. But you are correct so much development and heavy traffic makes it difficult.:frown:
