Bentonville Battlefield State Historic Site is 17 mi. s. off SR 1008 at 5466 Harper House Rd. One of the last conflicts of the Civil War—and the largest land engagement in North Carolina—was fought on this site Mar. 19-21, 1865. The Harper House was used as a hospital by Union troops and is furnished as a Civil War-era field hospital. The visitor center offers exhibits and an orientation presentation. Visitors can take a 10-mile, self-guiding tour of the battlefield that includes seven tour stops.
