Site of early Civil War battle fought July 13, 1861. Border Rangers and local citizens met on "Fortification Hill" to repel an advance by five companies of the 2nd Kentucky Inf. After firing several volleys, Union troops made a bayonet charge up the hill and dispersed the locals. Union casualties were sixteen. Local famer James Reynolds, age 58, died of wounds sustained in battle.
