Zollicoffer, mortally wounded in the battle. The park contains a 0.5-mile walking trail, interpretive signs, the Confederate mass grave, and the Zollicoffer Confederate Memorial Cemetery.
Prestonburg, Kentucky | The story of this historic site begins January 10, 1862, when an unknown colonel, James A. Garfield (who would later be President of the United States), was pitted against the experience of Brig. Gen. Humphrey Marshall.
