Battle of Bentonville

5466 Harper House Road, Four Oaks NC 27524

Confederate Gen. Joseph Johnston thought he had a chance to slow down Sherman's march through the state. But the Union army eventually overpowered the Confederates during this March 19-21, 1865, battle (the largest in NC). Now a state historic site with good museum and driving tour.

Museum/visitor center open 9 am-5 pm Tuesday-Saturday. Free.
