Recent Drone Photos Showing the Site of the Battle of Point Pleasant

On the evening of Friday, January 24, 2022, I flew my drone over Point Pleasant, West Virginia. The setting sun appeared to be shining a spotlight on the old battleground from Lord Dunmore’s War in 1774. From this angle you get a great view of the perspective of the battlefield. General Lewis’s army was camped right here at the point. However, the battle itself took place throughout what is modern-day Point Pleasant. There’s a lot of history buried on this little stretch of ground….

I shot this footage last fall in 4k, but I never properly processed it. Well here it is. I recently found an old print of “The History of Gap Mills Community,” written by C.C. Ballard, so I threw in a few historical tidbits I thought was interesting. That way, it isn’t a complete waste of time to watch the video, since you will technically learn something.
