The last major battle of the Civil War and the largest on North Carolina soil, Bentonville and Averasboro occupy important places in the history of the conflict. While Slocum's advance was stalled at Averasboro by Hardee's troops, the right wing of Sherman's army under command of Maj. Gen. O.O. Howard marched toward Goldsboro. On March 19, Slocum encountered the entrenched Confederates of Gen. Joseph E. Johnston who had concentrated to meet his advance at Bentonville.
