Fort Duffield 

Camp 1

Civil War Fort Duffield

 General William T. Sherman ordered the construction of this fortification, which began November 3, 1861, designed to guard the Union supply depot at West Point, Kentucky, near the confluence of the Salt and Ohio Rivers.  Built by the soldiers of the 9th Michigan Volunteer Infantry, the fort saw little, if any, action.  Still it was a deterrent to invading and raiding Confederate soldiers who found the fort, bristling with soldiers and cannon, guarding the flank of Louisville.  It is Kentucky's largest and best-preserved earthen fortification, and is open year-round for self-guided tours.  For more information, go to their website:
