Save to foursquare

The scene of a September 1, 1863 battle between Confederates heading for Waldron and pursing Union cavalry troops is all privately owned and not accessible to the public. Its modern appearance is much as it likely was at the time of fighting. There is a large rock with a bronze plaque on the corner of US 71 & Hendrix Road
