Geocache Description:

This is located on the Cumberland River Greenway at Brookmeade. The trailhead is at N36.07.847 W086.54.243. There is a paved trail until the last 30 feet which ends at the lookout. If it has just rained, it can get quite muddy going down to the "other trail". There is a lot of tree cover. The closet reading I got was 7 feet away.This is a .28 mile walk.

Kelley's Point Battlefield is a significant site rarely mentioned in historical accounts of the battle of Nashville.From Kelley's Point the Confederate line arched over 14 miles across the county from west to east Nashville. The actions at Kelley's Point were also the largest sustained battle between the Confederate cavalry and the Union navy.For two weeks prior to the battle, four artillery pieces under the command of Confederate cavalry under Lt. Col. D.C. Kelley effectively blockaded the Cumberland River against seven heavily armed Union gunboats. Confederate cavalry and Federal gunboats clashed in six separate engagements.During the fourth engagement, on December 6, 1864, the U.S.S. Neosho was hit more than 100 times by cannon fire without sinking. The ironclad narrowly avoided disaster when an unexploded Confederate shell breached the ship's iron plating and lodged in its powder magazine.John Dizenback, the ship's quartermaster, was later awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for saving the Union colors aboard the Neosho when the flag was shot away by Confederate guys.
