||As Gen. John B. Hood began the Franklin-Nashville Campaign during the fall of 1864, his Army of
Tennessee demonstrated against Decatur, Alabama, October 26-29, in an attempt to cross the Tennessee River.
Union forces, under the command of Brig. Gen. Robert S. Granger for most of the battle, numbered only about
5,000 men, but successfully prevented the much larger Confederate force from crossing the river.
||Union victory (Confederate forces could not cross the river.)
