A new Civil War interpretive sign is to be erected in front of the Massanutten Regional Library in downtown Harrisonburg. This was the site of Hill's Hotel where Capt. John H. McNeill died of wounds in 1864 during Sheridan's Raid in Rockingham County. McNeill's Rangers were a partisan group that aided the Confederate troops during the Civil War in reconnaissance and by providing food and supplies. McNeill died on November 10, 1864, the same day Lt. John Rodgers Meigs got killed in nearby Dayton.
