Rich Mountain Battlefield

Confederates built Camp Garnett to block the Staunton-Parkersburg Turnpike. Soldiers here felled trees, dug trenches and stacked rocks for protection. Fortifications covered the hills overlooking this road, forming a fearsome obstacle for General McClellan's army.

"The regiment will be able to hold five times their number in check... if they will stand to their work."
Confederate General R.S. Garnett
