Description 

The Battle of Bentonville, where two military titans of the Civil War--Gens. William T. Sherman and Joseph E. Johnston--faced each other for the final time in a major battle, was the last occasion on which a Confederate army mounted an all-out offensive during the Civil War. The loss here was the Confederacy's death knell, for it fatally weakened their last mobile field army. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, June 19, 1996
