In 1861Confederate forces constructed this defense bunker in the winter of 1861. The bunker site was chosen due to the relatively high elevation of the Centreville area and it's excellent vantage. Confederate forces held the bunker from the time of its construction until Union forces captured it in March of 1862. It remained under Union control until the end of the war.
