After surviving the Battle of McDowell, in which he lost many comrades, Lt. "Shep" Pryor was later wounded in battle near Culpepper, Virginia. He survived the war, returned to his beloved Penelope, and became Sheriff of Sumter County, Georgia. Lt. Pryor died on May 2, 1911 at the age of 82.

The 12th Georgia Volunteer Infantry fought with honor in Jackson's Shenandoah Valley Campaign and then moved on to fight with the Army of Northern Virginia, General Early's Shenandoah Valley Operations and General Lee's Appomattox Campaign.

Today, national forest managers are protecting this historic site for future generations. This mountain once denuded of trees to provide a clear field for cannon and rifle fire has healed over time, as has this great nation. But, let us remember those who suffered and died - far from home.
