On this site December 9, 1864 Union General Gouvereur K. Warren with 28,000 troops at his command clashed with troops of Confederate Generals Wade Hampton and Wm. H. F. Lee, in a failed attempt to destroy the railroad bridge and tracks going south. At the end of the day they were still in Confederate hands. It is to these men, both Confederate and Union who fought and died for their beliefs we dedicate this Field of Battle.
