July 17, 1863

—Berlin X-Roads Jackson County, Ohio —

During the Civil War at this location
the Confederate forces of General Johm
Hunt Morgan fought and defeated
Union forces under the command of
Col. Benjamin P. Runkle. Each side
consisted of approximately 1.500 men
The engagement began at 1:00 a.m
with the Confederates launching a
cannonade followed by a cavalry charge
against the Union forces, sweeping them
from the field. This allowed Morgan's
forces to proceed eastward where they
hoped to cross the Ohio River into the
safety of Virginia. The three-hour halt
caused by having to fight the Battle of
Berlin Heights, quite possibly delayed
the Confederates enough to allow Union
forces to catch up to them and defeat
them at the Battle of Buffington Island
on July 19, 1863.
