The Battle of Bentonville (March 19-21, 1865) was the last full-scale action of the Civil War in which a Confederate army was able to mount a tactical offensive. This was the largest battle fought in North Carolina and the only significant attempt to defeat the Union army of Gen. William T. Sherman during its march through the Carolinas.
The Harper House still stands at the site. The downstairs rooms are furnished to interpret a functioning Civil War field hospital. 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.
The battlefield is managed by the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources (www.ncdcr.gov). Events at Bentonville and other state historic sites, as well as state history and art museums, are listed at www.ncculture.com.
