This roadside monument marks the area where Major Daniel McCook died during the battle of Buffington Island. Daniel McCook, an attorney, came to Ohio from Pennsylvania in 1826, eventually settling in Carrollton.

During the Civil War, Daniel, his eight sons, and his brother, John, and his five sons were known as the "Fighting McCooks." Three of Daniel's sons were killed in the other Civil War battles.
