Fort CurtisOn this hillside stood Ft. Curtis. It commanded the high ground overlooking the junction of the road that connected Ironton and Pilot Knob with Fredericktown. In 1863 it was abandoned for Ft. Davidson because it was too far from the rail terminus and supply depot in Pilot Knob. Confederate officers used this site as an observation post during the battle because it gave them a good view of the entire valley.
