The main hospital depot for the wounded of the Union Army was located in this vicinity during the battle of September 19th and 20th. The hospitals of the 1st and 3rd Divisions, 20th Corps, and the 2nd and 4th Divisions, 14th Corps, were established near this point, utilizing a large brick building and several outbuildings supplemented by tents. The hospitals of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Divisions of the 21st Corps were established near here on the Dry Valley Road on the 19th. By 8 o'clock on the evening of the 19th every place of shelter was filled. On the afternoon of the 20th when the right of the Union Army was driven back a great number of wounded were evacuated from these hospitals by ambulance and supply train wagons to Chattanooga via the Dry Valley Road. Fourteen medical officers of the 21st Corps, eleven medical officers of the 20th Corps, and a number of medical officers of the 14th Corps with rations and medical supplies remained here to care for the non-transportable wounded and the wounded left on the field. These surgeons and wounded fell into the hands of the enemy.
