      I am not sure of the terrain in the 1860s but I doubt there was retaining system. The river went to far through hostel territory. I do not think the vegetation was as dense as today which would made it easier to fire on river traffic. I went through that area about  a year ago and thought about my Texas Cavalry boys working that area. My GGF and his brother were from southwest of Lebanon. I think their home place is under water today. I can find no Nowlin/Nolen/Nolin graves in Wilson County. I figured that my 6th Texas Cavalry kin went home at least a couple of times to see sister and sister-in-law. Their brother William Nolen died or was killed in 18622. Can not find him either. His kids moved to Nashville. I often think of that area.  Bill Nolan, Kerrville, TX  <oldgoat36@...>

      The Tennessee river is navigable from Nashville to Chattanooga.
      At least there are river boat tours today.
      Why was it not used by Rosecreans to resupply Chattanooga?
