Confederate CampAfter Union forces occupied New Bern in March 1862, Confederate Maj. John N. Whitford established a camp here at Haddocks Crossroads, the intersection of the main roads from Greenville to New Bern and to Kinston. Whitford's Battalion of Partisan Rangers, as his unit was called, later was designated the 67th North Carolina Infantry with Whitford as colonel. Two companies were stationed here to monitor and block any Federal troops that might approach from New Bern. At least twice, Union forces attacked the camp.
