Confederate Hospital
Set up in the First Presbyterian Church to receive wounded from battle of Bentonville, 1865, was here.

This historical marker is located on US 29A (Summit Avenue) in Greensboro. It was erected in 1950.

Wikipedia has an article on the Battle of Bentonville, from which the following is excerpted:

The Battle of Bentonville was fought March 19–21, 1865, in Bentonville, North Carolina, near the current town of Four Oaks, as part of the Carolinas Campaign of the American Civil War. It was the last major battle to occur between the armies of Major General William T. Sherman and General Joseph E. Johnston. In light of overwhelming enemy strength and the relatively heavy casualties his army suffered in the battle, Johnston surrendered to Sherman little more than a month later at Bennett Place, near Durham Station. Coupled with Robert E. Lee's surrender earlier in April, Johnston's surrender represented the effective end of the war.
