Watson / outsides United States United States of America Chesterfield County sign with text Caption POINT OF ROCKS Point of Rocks is located two miles south on the Appomattox River. In 1608, Captain John Smith wrote about this high rock cliff which projected out to the channel of the river. Known to all as Point of Rocks, it was severly damaged during a battle between Confederate artillery and Federal gunboats on June 26, 1862. Rock from the point was used to build the wall of the City Point National Cemetery shortly after the Civil War. Department of Conservation and Historic Resources, 1987
