Bentonville Battlefield

The Battle of Bentonville was the last full-scale action of the Civil War and the largest ever fought in North Carolina. Much of the battlefield has been preserved. The Harper House, used as a hospital, still stands. A Confederate mass grave, the Harper family cemetery, and a tour trail leading to a section of Union earthworks are also accessible to the public. Reminders of the battle are on exhibit in the Visitor Center along with an audiovisual program about the battle. Roads in the area are marked with highway historical markers and waysides highlighting action that took place there.
