In the late summer of 1862, Confederate General Braxton Bragg marched northward down this valley with an army of several thousand soldiers, supply wagons, and artillery pieces en route to invade Kentucky. They traveled and camped along the east side nearby of Cane Creek. After the October 8, 1862 Battle of Perryville, Kentucky, the campaign to invade Kentucky was abandoned. During the battle, twelve soldiers from Van Buren County were killed and several others wounded.
