Civil War trails sign on the Confederate delaying action on May 11, 1864 during the Union advance on New Market, Confederate shelling on May 15, 1864 after the attack and the mortal wounding of partisan ranger John H. McNeill.

On October 3, 1864, partisan ranger John H. McNiell was severely wounded in an attack on a Union force guarding the Shenandoah River Bridge.  He was carried to what was formally the Rude Home, which was named “Locust Grove” and treated there before being removed to Harrisonburg.
