The main objective of the Confederate Army in fortifying Columbus was to block Union movements on the Mississippi River. In so doing they also had to protect their position from inland attack. The trenches through which this trail leads are part of an elaborate system of earthworks dug by Confederate soldiers. These trenches were heavily fortified with cannon and rifle batteries.
