A small Confederate cemetery overlooks the site of the 1861 Battle of Laurel Hill near Belington in Barbour County.
Confederate soldiers established Camp Bartow at this site 150 years ago. In October 1861, Union artillerymen fired more than 1,500 shells at Rebel troops camped here during the Battle of Greenbrier River.
Gen. Robert E. Lee had sweeping views of the countryside from the headquarters camp he maintained here at Valley Mountain during the summer of 1861.
The remnants of Civil War trenches, fortified artillery positions and cabin foundations can still be seen at Camp Allegheny in Pocahontas County, a stop on the First Campaign driving tour.
