Long Description:
Burnside had an active Civil War career leading troops while at the First Bull Run, North Carolina, Tennessee, Antietam, & Fredericksburg.
He was responsible for stopping John Hunt Morgan's Confederate's troops when they decided to take on southern Indiana and southern Ohio.

Take a look at the link provided- we get our term "sideburns" due to the way Gen. Burnside wore his hair.


This is a plaque honoring the birthplace of General A.E. Burnside's birthplace- the homestead is now gone. This marker was erected due to the efforts of the National Society of Daughters of the Union [186101865]

Little room to pull off and park on this "not-so-busy"- but fast moving road. Watch out for speeding cars. There is a guard rail that blocks off the remnant of a pull off around the marker.
