Camp Allegheny Battlefield
On December 13, 1861, Union troops under Brig. Gen. Robert H. Milroy attempted to dislodge Col. Edward Johnson's Confederates from their position atop Allegheny Mountain. The Rebels would eventually repulse the Federal force, earning Johnson the sobriquet Edward "Allegheny" Johnson.

Today, Camp Allegheny's mountain vista appears much as it did in 1861. Unfortunately, the construction of several massive wind turbines threatens to permanently mar this pristine landscape.
