The Coosa River passes through Ohatchee, Alabama. During the Civil War there was a ferry station in Ohatchee that was used to move supplies for the Confederate Army.
Part of the Northern Army had just taken Decatur, Alabama, which is located on the banks of the Tennessee River. It also had a railroad passing through the city and a developed highway. Decatur was a vital transportation hub at the time.
Their next battle was in Ohatchee. They took control of the ferry and crippled transportation options going through Alabama. It was a small battle, but it was also a devastating blow to the Confederate Army.
