'Forgotten' Battle is Now Well Remembered

Record #:
The Battle of Bentonville, which was the bloodiest battle in North Carolina was also the last. The Confederates, led by Joseph Johnston, fought the Union army, led by General Sherman, to a draw. The Union's victory during the Carolina Campaign will be preserved as the land encompassing the site has been purchased for safeguarding. Totaling $50,000 dollars, the funds were obtained from the State Legislature as well as the Bentonville Battlefield Association.
