I live about 3 miles away from where the battle took place. Believe it or not this area was a very important place for the Confederate States. One because it was the only railroad link to East Tenn. and secondly for the very important link to the salt works at Saltville Va. I can't recall the persons name that owns the farm now but it does have a place where you can pull off and see the battle field. Although I have several ancestors that fought for the CSA they were all in northern VA or in NC at the time. I will try to find out who owns the property now and let you know just in case you ever want to visit.

Do you know of any diarys of men in the 8th Va. Cav.? A lot of the men came from Bland and Tazewell County. I read part of the guys over in WV that was in the 8th.
