At one time, Fortress Rosecrans had miles of walls enclosing 200 acres used for storing supplies for the Union Army. When I saw that only about 10% of the fortress survives, I didn't expect much, but there's probably at least a quarter mile of walls, transverses, gun emplacements, etc. The area is now part of a city park, so it's... 更多

Pleasant historic place to visit for war buffs. Nice walk and wheelchair accessible. Nearby park good for picnics and play equipment for the kids.

I'm not a super history buff, and was not looking forward to yet another fort...was pleasantly surprised at how lovely this place is. Yes, there are the historic markers which were very informative. If I didn't know it was a Civil War landmark, I'd go anyway for the trails and peace. A great place to go for a long walk... 更多
Easy parking and nice walking trails take you on a tour of this historic Civil War site. Signage on site explains in detail the various features you can still see. Definitely worth the trip!
This is a good stop for an overall view of the Civil War experience around Middle TN. The location was preserved many years ago and it's a good interpretive stop. Fortress Rosecrans was a major supply depot for the road to Atlanta and the final destruction of the South.
When we to see this fortress, the only thing we saw on this small lot was a stack of cannon balls with a historical sign. definetly no worht the small trip up the road.
