(September 2009) Enlarge Dismal Swamp which was a refuge for runaway slaves. The canal was a "prize of war" during the war and was used by the Confederates during the early part of the war to transport supplies. The canal figured greatly during the battle of South Mills since the Union objective was to blow up the locks on the canal. Following the Battle, Confederate sympathizers and deserters hid in the Swamp and periodically raided Federal boats. The canal was returned to its owners after the surrender at Appomattox in 1865 in a deplorable condition. The canal has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places
