FORT DICKERSON

Linking with other hills south of
the river, this Union position was
a major factor in the defense of
Knoxville. Occupied on Nov. 1, 1863,
by the 2nd Brig. (Col. Daniel Cameron),
3rd Div., XXIII Corps, its gunfire
broke up an attempt on Nov. 15-16
by Confederate cavalry which had
come via Sweetwater and Maryland
to seize these heights in Long-
street's bid to capture the city.
