Enon Church - The Battle of Haw's Shop

Lee vs. Grant - The 1864 Campaign

"Confederate cavalry under Gen. Wade Hampton... collided with Gen. David Gregg's Union cavalry division near the Haw's Shop crossroads one mile in front of you. After a brief fight on horseback, Confederate cavalry fell back, dismounted, and hastily built a line of protective works on both sides of the road behind the church.
The two sides battled indecisively for several hours before the arrival of Gen. George Custer's Michigan brigade turned stalemate into victory for the Federals. "
