The Battle of Cane Hill, Arkansas
One of the least known major events of the Civil War in the West, the Battle of Cane Hill was fought on November 28, 1862, in Washington County, Arkansas.
The engagement involved more than 7,000 men and nearly forty pieces of artillery. Although it is often relegated to the status of a preliminary episode of the Battle of Prairie Grove, the Battle of Cane Hill was a significant encounter in its own right.
Although there is no battlefield park at Cane Hill, many areas associated with the battle can be seen. If you are interested in learning more, please visit www.exploresouthernhistory.com/ARCaneHill.
