On the hillside before you, inside the fort walls, stood some 100 log huts, part of 400 built in the area to house the Confederate garrison. The activity of hundreds of men probably created acres of mud during the winter snows and spring rains. After the battle Union forces occupied the fort. They later burned the cabins because of a measles epidemic and abandoned this position in favor of a new fort built where the National Cemetery is today.
