“Scene of the Last Major Confederate Offensive of the Civil War”
The Battle of Bentonville, fought March 19-21, 1865, was the last full-scale action of the Civil War in which a Confederate army was able to mount a tactical offensive. This major battle, the largest ever fought in North Carolina, was the only significant attempt to defeat the large Union army of Gen. William T. Sherman during its march through the Carolinas in the spring of 1865.
Incredible place that does an excellent job preserving an important chapter in our country’s history. An easy stop for a road trip, as most of the trail is along the road. The visitor center has a thorough, educational exhibit on Bentonville’s history that gives you a much better appreciation of the events of the Civil War. Highly recommend!!!
