ⓘ John H. Morgan Surrender Site

The John H. Morgan Surrender Site is the place where, during the American Civil War, Brig. Gen. John Hunt Morgan, the leader of Confederate troops responsible for Morgans Raid, surrendered to Union troops following the Battle of Salineville. The site is located at a crossroads between the villages of Gavers and West Point in Columbiana County, Ohio, about 60 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 23, 1973 for its military significance.

It is reported that Morgan caved under what was called "the tree to surrender." The location was the northernmost point at which the command of the confederates pierced the Northern territory during the Civil war, with the exception of the St Albans RAID in Vermont.
