Overview

The Battle of Bentonville, fought March 19-21, 1865, was the last full-scale action of the Civil War in which a Confederate army was able to mount a tactical offensive. This major battle, the largest ever fought in North Carolina, was the only significant attempt to defeat the large Union army of Gen. William T. Sherman during its march through the Carolinas in the spring of 1865.

This is another site that the state of North Carolina knocked out of the park. Well interpreted from the museum, to the Harper House to the Battlefield itself, but please take the time to drive the field to get the full appreciation!

Have driven by this battlefield many times on I95. Decided to check it out. Really enjoyed it. The Harper House was very interesting and the driving tour was excellent. Take the time to check out the last major battle of the Civil War.)!
