When 4,000 Union troops met Confederate forces in December 1863 at the Battle of Bean Station, it resulted in 1,600 casualties. This site honors those brave soldiers. The grounds where the Battle of Bean Station was fought are now under the waters of Cherokee Lake. Note the island just off shore; it is the "Breastworks," an earthen fortification used during battle.
