A lot of Civil War history here. The Battle of Lewis's Farm, fought on 29 March 1865, was the first in a series of attempts by Grant's army to cut Lee's final supply line -- the South Side Railroad -- in spring 1865. Here the Union forces led by Brig. Gen. Joshua L. Chamberlain engaged Confederates under Maj. Gen. Bushrod R. Johnson. Also the Battle of Five Forks on 1 April, 1865 when General Ulysses S. Grant sent the Sixth Corps, some 14,000 strong, pouring over the Confederate fortifications near Tudor Hall Plantation, now preserved by Pamplin Historical Park.
