Put on your hiking shoes and ascend Mt. Rachel to an undisturbed Confederate artillery platform that guarded the East Tennessee & Georgia Railroad running south from Knoxville. Constructed during the Army of Tennessee’s late 1863-early 1864 winter encampment in Dalton. This earthen structure is though to have been manned by an artillery battery belonging to Lt. Col. Samuel William’s battalion.
