Hanging Rock Battlefield TrailNear the site, on the morning of June 21, 1864, Union Major General David Hunter's ambulances, artillery, and supply and munitions wagons crossed the ford at Mason's Creek. The wagon train stalled, and was left unprotected because U.S. Brig. General Alexander Duffie had moved his cavalry ahead to Catawba Mountain.
