Woodall Mountain is the highest point in the state of Mississippi, at 806 feet. It is known as America's Bloodiest High Point because of the 1862 Civil War Battle of Iuka. Artillery pieces were fired from the hill then known as Yow Mountain, as The Union Army of the Mississippi General Rosecrans delivered punishment to the forces of Confederate General Sterling Price and the city of Iuka.
The Highpointers Club has installed a bench and informational plaque on the mountaintop.
Originally called Yow Hill or Yow Mountain, it was renamed in 1878 after Zephaniah Woodall, Sheriff of Tishomingo Co.
