Fourteen Days of Waiting: Belmont Mansion Before the Battle of Nashville

The Battle of Nashville, which occurred on December 15 and 16, 1864, effectively ended the Civil War in the Western theater. Belmont Manson was the scene for many preparations for this battle during its occupation by the 4th Corps of the Federal Army.

This publication tells the detailed story of the fourteen days leading up to the Battle of Nashville at Belmont Mansion. The booklet includes archival photographs and illustrations, a detailed list of General Thomas J. Wood’s staff at Belmont during the occupation, an index of Regiments in the 4th Corps, and transcripts of original documents.
