17 Buffington Island - Ohio Historical Society - Buffington Island commemorates the only significant Civil War battle that took place on Ohio soil. Here, a Union army routed a column of Confederate cavalry commanded by General John Hunt Morgan in 1863. Major Daniel McCook, who was mortally wounded in the fight, was the patriatch of the fighting McCook family that consisted of himself and his eight sons, and his brother John's five sons.
