Harriet's Chapel and Starr's Battery SiteThis site was the center of the Confederate's final line of defense during the Dec. 13-14, 1862 Battle of Kinston. It occurred as Union General John G. Foster's Division was enroute from New Bern to Goldsboro to destroy the Wilmington-Weldon Railroad Bridge which would cut a major supply route to General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. Foster also planned to destroy the CSS Neuse gunboat under construction at White Hall (Seven Springs).
