On July 25, 1863, Brigadier General John Hunt Morgan and his Confederate raiders headed north following the skirmish at the Two Ridges Church just outside Wintersville. The Union pursuers under Brigadier General James M. Shackelford were hard on their heels as Morgan and his men entered the small town of Richmond.

They collected only a few fresh mounts before they headed for East Springfield. Arriving there around 7 pm, the Confederates found a handful of fresh horses and interrupted a church choir practice.

Local villager Bill Huscroft offered Morgan $360 not to take his best horses. Morgan asked to see the money and decided to relieve Huscroft of both the money and the horses. Morgan left the village riding in a black buggy pulled by a pair of white horses.

Union forces under General Shackelford camped here at the mining community known as "The Eastern."
