Fort Donelson Battlefield

The Fort Donelson National Battlefield, located along the banks of the Cumberland River, is a great place to visit.  The park has a 6-mile trail with 11 stops.  In addition to visiting key parts of the battlefield, you can also see the historic Dover Hotel where General "Unconditional Surrender" Grant won fame, and the Fort Donelson National Cemetery.  Entry to the park is from Lock D Road off of Donelson Parkway.
