On October 28, 1864, General Nathan Bedford Forrest, C.S.A., began his famous Johnsonville Raid by placing masked batteries on the banks of the Tennessee River here at Paris Landing and about five miles north at abondoned Fort Heiman. With the use of this artiler during the next four days, the Confederates destroyed one Federal steamer, seized two more, and captured a heavily armed gunboat, the "Undine," which was the last U.S. Navy warship captured during the Civil War.
