Battle of Corrick's Ford

Also: Battle of Laurel Hill

After the Battle of Rich Mountain, the Confederate forces under General Robert S. Garnett were forced to retreat. They were pursued by General Thomas A. Morris, who caught up with them on July 13th at Corrick's Ford, on the Cheat River. In the Battle of Corrick's Ford, Garnett personally directed the Confederate attempts to hold off the Union attackers, but his forces were hard pressed and when Garnett was killed, the Southerners fled the field. Garnett's death was the first for a general in the Civil War.
