American Civil War Fort Negley - Revision 7 3D Model
1100 Fort Negley Blvd. Nashville, Tennessee Area: 180,000 sq ft (fort only) Built: 1862 https://battleofnashville.com
Built by Union troops after the capture of Nashville, Tennessee during the American Civil War. It was the largest inland fort built in the United States during the war. The fort was constructed out of 62,500 cubic feet (1,770 m3) of stone, 18,000 cubic feet (510 m3) of earth and cost $130,000. It was largely constructed using the labor of local slaves (including women), newly freed slaves who had flocked to Nashville once it was taken by Union forces with the understanding that their status as slaves was to be revoked were they to work for the Union, and by free blacks forcibly conscripted for the work. Records show that 2,768 blacks were officially enrolled in its construction. The fort was named for Union Army commander General James S. Negley. - Wikipedia | 600-800 of the laborors died building the fort due to poor working conditions.
