Cotton Hill, in Fayette County, west of Fayetteville, West Virginia, rises to more than 2,000 feet along the southern flank of the New River Gorge. Though not a prominent feature on the landscape, the hill figured locally during the Civil War. Local legend maintains a brass cannon was hidden in a cleft on the hill by Confederate troops withdrawing from an outpost overlooking the river at Gauley Bridge, WV.
