Droop Mountain Battlefield State Park

Union troops won the largest Civil War battle in West Virginia high above the Greenbrier River on Droop Mountain on November 6, 1863, ending organized Confederate resistance in the state. Despite their advantage on high ground, Rebels were overcome by Federal troops clearing a southward route to the Virginia & Tennessee Railroad. Park visitors now picnic where soldiers fought and hike, bike, and ski where they walked. Park highlights include battlefield markers, a park museum (open seasonally), and an observation tower the overlooks the Little Levels of the Greenbrier Valley.
