Fort Davidson State Historic Site
Earthwork remnants of Fort Davidson, occupied by Union Forces during the bloody Battle of Pilot Knob, are still visible at this 37-acre historic site. The Civil War battle on Sept. 27, 1864, lasted less than one hour, but an estimated 1,200 men, most of them Confederates, were wounded or killed. Exhibits in the visitor center feature the historic battle.
