On Nov. 28, 1864, the Left Wing (14th and 20th Corps) of Gen. Sherman's army [US] moved from Davisboro to Louisville, the main body on this road. Jackson's and Geary's divisions, 20th Corps, along the Central Railroad, and Morgan's and Baird's divisions, 14th Corps, via Fenn's Bridge (12 miles NW).

When Baird's division, which had camped on the road from Fenn's Bridge, reached this point, the bridge over Rocky Comfort Creek had been destroyed by Wheeler's cavalry [CS].

Pontoniers of the 58th Indiana Infantry bridged the stream with pontoons in time to permit Baird and Morgan to clear the bridge without seriously delaying the main body.
