History
Jefferson Davis Re-enactment EventThey were headed for the Western Theater of War where Davis planned to unite rebel forces and continue fighting for the 'lost cause.' On May 9, 1865, they camped in this pine forest, not knowing that pursuit was so close behind.

At dawn, they were surrounded by two independent groups of Union cavalry who were unaware of each other's presence. Gunfire ensued until the federal forces realized they had been shooting at one another. Two Union cavalrymen died during the skirmish. Davis was taken prisoner and held in Virginia for two years until released.

Today, a monument marks the spot where he was arrested. Visitors can tour the 13-acre historic site.

NOTE: Site is operated by Irwin County. Open Wed - Sun, 9am - 5pm. Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. Call to confirm hours and prices.
