Confederate troops took stand at old stone wall:
The stone wall still stands in suburban Nashville where Major Gen. William Loring's troops of Lt. Gen. Alexander P. Stewart's corps desperately tried to stem the Union onslaught in the Confederate center the second day of battle, Dec. 16, 1864.

The stone wall was built in 1845 to divide the estates of John Overton and John Lea.
