Near the site is a historical marker on US-21 detailing the battle. Twenty miles away at the Fishing Creek Presbyterian Church, a stone marker was erected in 2002 in memory of the Revolutionary soldiers and Civil War soldiers buried in the church cemetery from the 1780 Battle of Fishing Creek and the 1862 Battle of Mill Springs.
