This sliver of land, part of the old Fountain Carter farm, included a convenience store, a house and two pizza restaurants until it was reclaimed by preservation organizations. Some of the most brutal fighting of the Civil War occurred here near the Carter cotton gin on Nov. 30, 1864. Confederate dead and wounded, according to an Ohio officer, “lay in perfect heaps” in the immediate distance.
