Skirmish At The Curry Farm

In May 1864, Capt John Chapman (34th VA Cavalry) headed for Logan and Cabell counties to round up deserters from his battalion. On May 29, the Confederate force came upon elements of the 3rd WV Cavalry along Mud River on the Curry Farm. Fired upon, the 3rd WV charged and drove off Chapman's men. During the brief fight, one Union soldier died and two others were wounded.
