Nearby is the site of Terrill Hill, home of the Terrill brothers of Bath County. Brigadier General William R. Terrill, a graduate of West Point, commanded a Union Brigade and was killed in the Battle of Perryville, Kentucky, October 8, 1862. His brother, Brigadier General James B. Terrill, a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, served with General A.P. Hill's 13th Regiment, Virginia Infantry and died in the Battle of the Wilderness, May 31, 1864. Legend says their father erected a monument to his sons with the inscription "God alone knows which was right."
