Fort Defiance was established at the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers to thwart the confederate invasion and blockade the trade of the South. From this spot was launched General Grant's Great Flanking movement up the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers which began at Fort Henry and ended at Vicksburg, giving the Union complete control of the Mighty Mississippi River.
