The Trenches of Bentonville

Record #:
The trenches on the Bentonville Battleground State Historic Site provide a visual testament to North Carolina's bloodiest Civil War battle. Some 90,000 Northern and Southern soldiers clashed there in March of 1865, with 4,243 casualties the result. The Confederacy's last hope required that General Johnston stop General Sherman in Bentonville. General Lee surrendered shortly after Johnston's retreat.
