Civil War Site - Kesler’s Raid

Address: 88 Rock Cave Road, Rock Cave WV 26234

In September 1863, Confederate Maj. Joseph Kesler led a raid through Upshur County aimed at capturing Sutton. As Kesler made his way back to his base in Pocahontas County, he captured seventy Union militia men at Centerville which earned him praise from his commander. Hardship and death was in store for the majority of the captured, however, who were sent to Confederate prison camps.
