Located in the Town of Smithfield, two stops along the NC Civil War Trails program. Walk along the streets of Downtown Smithfield and stop at the Johnston County Courthouse, where one marker depicts that General Sherman announced to his troops the end of the Civil War on the steps of the courthouse. Just around the corner from the courthouse is the Hastings House, where General Joseph Johnston met with General Bragg to plan the Battle of Bentonville, March 19-21, 1865, the last Confederate offensive of the Civil War.
