Civil War Trails sign and information kiosk on the Confederate artillery positions during the Battle of Cross Keys. The  Artillery Ridge sight located within Cross Keys battlefield provides the location of one of the most effective uses of the Confederate Artillery during the War. The Confederate victory at the Battle of Cross Keys and the effective use of its Artillery, prevented two Union Armies from uniting.  This would set the stage for the Confederate victory the following day at Port Republic.
