This is a civil war sight with not a lot to see. A field some small cabins and a few mounds that were built. You will need to imagine the rest! Nice little walk to enjoy and imagine what went on here!

This historic site has free parking close to the trail start/finish. The trail is clearly marked, and well placed markers give details about the battle. They also have a barn that serves as a venue for meetings, weddings, etc. To tour, plan on spending at least an hour or so. It's worth the stop!

Nice, well-kept battlefield. It is small but a lot to see for it's size including where the bridge was (and new one is), the monument and flag, interpretive markers, snake rail fencing and some breastworks. Worth a 30-60 minute visit.

This park is run by the county, and while it does not have the amenities that a national or state park might have, it has a well-interpreted walking trail that takes you to earthworks and the site of the old railroad bridge. Many people don't realize that Goldsboro was a key strategic point in North Carolina both in 1862, when... More
