The most impressive of the Federal forts in Nashville, Fort Negley was built largely with the labor of conscripted and enslaved African Americans. Here are enlargements of an 1864 George Barnard image of the interior of the fort. Cool stuff. Explore the original photograph on the Library of Congress web site.
