Earthworks on Cheat Mountain

These Civil War earthworks have been eroding since 1862 but you can still see what remains of their contours. Our professor and his wife had previewed the tour two weeks before, and Betty said that at that time Cheat Mountain Summit was pretty much black from a forest fire. However, Spring had brought green growth to cover some of the charred earth, but you can still see black evidence of the fire. The signs survived but looked a bit cloudy and scratched.
