Lewisburg was the site of a Civil War battle on May 23, 1862, when Union forces attempted to sever railroad communications between Virginia and Tennessee. There is a Confederate cemetery in town, a library used as a hospital with Confederate graffiti on the walls, a church with a cannonball hole, another church that served as a Confederate morgue, and a monument to the Confederate dead.
