Fort Henry

Situated on the Tennessee River in upper Middle Tennessee, Fort Henry was constructed in 1861. During the Civil War, its capture on February 6, 1862, provided a significant early victory for the Union during the Civil War and opened the Tennessee River to Union movement beyond the Alabama state line. Union General Ulysses S. Grant had planned a ground assault against Fort Henry while gunboats of the Union Navy shelled the fort from the river. However, the Confederates surrendered Fort Henry prior to the commencement of the land assault. From Fort Henry, Grant marched to Fort Donelson on the Cumberland River.
