1. Battle Of Mill Point Marker
Inscription.  On the morning of November 5, 1863, Union troops under General William Averell attacked Colonel William Jackson's Confederates around Mill Point, a site used by Jackson as a supply depot. As the skirmishing continued, Federal reinforcements led Jackson to fall back to Droop Mountain, where more Confederates met him. The buildup of men led to a much larger battle the next day.
