About Fortress Rosecrans

Fortress Rosecrans was a fortified structure built by the Army of the Cumberland following the Battle of Stones River in 1863. It was named after General William S. Rosecrans, who led the men during this battle. Fortress Rosecrans went on to become a vital base through which the Union army passed supplies in their campaign to capture nearby Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Today, little is left of this site, but it can be viewed as part of a trip to Stones River Battlefield.
