Fort Harrison Richmond National Battlefield Park

In the predawn darkness Federal soldiers storm over this outer wall. Hundreds of Confederates are asleep in their tents.
Although the Federals are able to overrun Fort Harrison, General Hiram Burnham, commanding the lead brigade; is killed. His troops rename the captured earthworks Fort Burnham.
The fall of Fort Harrison on September 29, 1864, forces Lee to bring in more troops and build new entrenchments to stitch up Richmond's weakened line of defense.
