General John Hunt Morgan led a force of
2,000 Confederate cavalrymen into Meigs
County on July 18, 1863, during a forty-six day
raid north of the Ohio River. After a skirmish
with the 23rd Ohio Infantry, the Confederates
paused to drink and replenish their canteens
with cool spring water found here in Rocksprings.
Nearby, Isaac Carleton, a Meigs County native.
was shot and wounded by a Confederate soldier.
After suffering set backs at Chester and
Buffington Island, Morgan surrendered eight
days later near West Point in Columbiana County.
The surrender field was the northernmost point ever
reached by Confederate forces during the Civil War.
