Hanging Rock Battlefield Trail

When Miss Massie Garst died in 1960, she bequested the Hanging Rock and Buzzard's Roost to the Virginia Division United Daughters of the Confederacy. She will that this site be preserved as memorial to the brave soldiers who fought and died in the Battle of Hanging Rock on June 21, 1864. Miss Garst's home was situated near the gap where Confederate Brig. General John McCausland fired on the artillery and supply wagons of Major General David Hunter's U.S. Army.

On June 3, 1932, the Southern Cross Chapter No. 746 U.D.C. erected a monument on Route 311, memorializing the battle and the Confederate soldiers who died here. On June 21, 1964, the William Watts Chapter No. 809 dedicated a monument at the intersection of I-81 and Route 419 to commemorate the One Hundredth Anniversary of the Battle of Hanging Rock.
