The Yeiser House (also known as Hiawatha) is one of only a few structures remaining from the Battle of Champion Hill. Once situated between two huge magnolia trees, it has now been moved to a new location in Raymond, Mississippi, and is being restored.
During the battle, Confederate General Lloyd Tilghman was placed in an ambulance and brought to this home after being struck by a shell fragment. Here, surgeons examined the general and pronounced him dead. His remains were conducted to Vicksburg, accompanied by his son, Lloyd Tilghman, Jr., and his personal staff.
