Rich Mountain Battlefield

Here stood the Hart House, surrounded by fierce fighting during the Battle of Rich Mountain. Joseph Hart, grandson of a signer of the Declaration of Independence, was an avid Union supporter who fled with his family when Confederates seized the mountain. Their two-story log home gave shelter during the battle and served as a hospital afterwards.

"The surgeons were amputating and dressing wounds... there are a great many limbs being taken off the wounded soldiers."
