During the Civil War, Pack's Ferry
was a strategic river crossing for
Federal troops in the area. On the
morning of August 6, 1662, 900 men
and 2 artillery guns of Confederate
Col. G. C. Wharton's command fired
on 23rd Ohio soldiers under Maj.
Comly. Though the fight threatened
Union control of the crossing, the
Ohioans held until reinforcements
neared and Wharton's men withdrew.
