Also see . . .  Fort Patrick Henry. The fort was built as a 100-yard square bastioned post and enclosed some three acres. Three sides were enclosed by the stockade and the fourth side was along the high bank of the Holston River. The fort was garrisoned throughout the Revolutionary War, and later became a jumping off point for settlers heading to White's Fort (Knoxville) and French Lick (Nashville).
