Civil War Sites In The AFNHA Region
Item 4 of 25

Now a private university, the A-B Campus sits on a hill that used to be part of the Talbot Farm. Visitors are welcome to tour the campus and the New Main. From the front of the New Main, you will see the site of the first land battle in Philippi. The first cannon shots that triggered the “races” came from this location as Union Colonel Landers led his troops down the hill towards the Covered Bridge at Philippi.
