Platted 1815 by Michael Moore and Gabriel Cane

In the late afternoon of Friday, July 24, 1863, this village was occupied by Confederate Cavalry commanded by Gen. John Hunt Morgan. While Morgan rested on the parlor bed of a local hotel, apparently undisturbed by the nearness of pursuing Union forces, his troopers stripped the vicinity of horses and edibles. Refreshed, the raiders departed late in the day. Shortly thereafter Moorefield became the more willing host to Gen. James M. Shackleford and Union Cavalry. Early morning, the 25th, found the village returning to normal quietude possessed however with exciting memories of its longest day.No. 4 Harrison County Historical Society 1965
