Boundary Adjustment Study
PROVIDED FOR INFORMATION ONLY is a copy of the 2003 U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service (NPS) conducted Boundary Adjustment Study and Environmental Assessment (BAS & EA) on whether to recommend that Congress authorize expanding the boundaries of Fort Donelson National Battlefield (FODO), in Stewart County, Tennessee, in order to protect related historic sites. The BAS & EA also analyses the environmental impacts of such an action. The sites include: 1) ten eligible properties within the battlefield core area of Fort Donelson itself; 2) Fort Henry, also in Stewart County, Tennessee, and 3) Fort Heiman, located in neighboring Calloway County, Kentucky.

The embrasures at Fort Donelson were constructed of sand bags lined with rawhide. The rawhide was wet down to prevent the bags from catching fire during an engagement.
