The battle fought here on September 19 and 20, 1862, brought to an end the Army of Northern Virginia's Maryland Campaign and was a significant factor in General Robert E. Lee's decision
to retreat farther into the Shenandoah Valley.
The battle is of significant historical value to our nation and a valuable West Virginia Landmark.
