Hospital house closed for repairs

The house that served as field hospital for the Union army at the Battle of Bentonville (N.C.) is being closed temporarily for plaster repairs. During the three-day Battle of Bentonville in 1865, nearly 600 Union and Confederate soldiers were treated in the home. The 11 members of the Harper family were forced to live upstairs while the downstairs was used as a hospital. • Article
