CONFEDERATE FORTIFICATIONS NORTH OF SALISBURY, OVERLOOKING A RAILROAD BRIDE CROSSING THE YADKIN RIVER. 31 MARCH 1865, GEN. BEAUREGARD HAD PREPARED FOR STONEMAN'S APPROACH. HE ORDERED: "BE CAREFUL ENEMY DO NOT DESTROY RAILROAD BRIDGE ACROSS THE YADKIN. PROTECT IT WITH FIELD-WORKS. ONE OR TWO BATTERIES HAVE BEEN ORDERER TO YOU." ON APRIL 3RD HE ADDED: "LIGHT BATTERY AT YADKIN BRIDGE MUST BE PLACED ON SOUTH SIDE OF RIVER SHOULD PROPER POSITIONS BE FOUND>' THIS ORDER WAS RE-ITERATED, TOO LATE, ON APRIL 12TH: "YADKIN BRIDGE SHOULD BE WELL GUARDED ON BOTH SIDES, ESPECIALLY ON SOUTH SIDE NOW." ON APRIL 6TH, BEAUREGARD ADVISED "THE IMMEDIATE CONSTRUCTION OF TETES-DE-POINT AT RAILROAD BRIDGE ON YADKIN AND CATAWBA; ALSO AT NEAREST FORDS TO EACH SAID BRIDGE." THE FORTIFICATION WERE SAID TO HAVE BEEN LAID OUT "BY A LIEUT. BEAUREGARD, A NEPHEW OF THE LATE GENERA." ORIGINALLY KNOW AS CAMP YADKIN, OVER THE YEARS THEY HAVE BEEN CALLED FORT BEAUREGARD, FORT YORK, AND YORK HILL. NOTE: The remains of the old fort and a newer railroad bridge can be seen from the Interested 85 bridges that cross over the Yadkin River, north of Salisbury and Spencer, NC. The old fort is in the process of restoration. See "Union Prisoners of War Crossing The Yadkin River on Platform Cars" Toward Salisbury, N.C., February 24, 1864, by Robert Know Sneden and also "Stoneman's Raid: Salisbury and the Yadkin River Brige".
