Lick Skillet Road  Marker  



Text:

A winding dirt road of the 1860´s which passed Erza Church (S.E. cor. Mozley Park), and continued S.W. to Gordon Terrace, where it joined Gordon Road and Westward to a cross road settlement called Lick Skillet, now know as Adamsville. The road, Mozley Drive, did not exist in 1864. Lick Skillet Road is cited frequently in reports, both , Confederate and Federal, as are 2 other landmarks of the battlefield: Erza Church and Alms House. The latter stood the present Gate House of the West View Cemetery. The battle of Erza Church began with the advance of S.D. Lee´s A.C. (deployed E. and W. of the Alms House) northward across Lick Skillet Road.
