The depression of the old farm road and the jumbled house foundations before you are all that remain of the plantation "Meadowville". John Cundiff, a bachelor, lived here during the Civil War producing oats, potatoes and hay, on about 350 acres of land.

In the aftermath of the savage fighting at the Brawner Farm on the evening of August 28, the house and grounds served as a field hospital for hundreds of wounded Union soldiers. A Union officer who visited the site that night remembered the area "lighted by torches or bits of candle," by which surgeons were "busily engaged in their melancholy labors." Concerning the wounded, he wrote, "I heard few complaints or groans; but, as I gazed on the poor patient fellows, my heart grew sick within me, and the whole air seemed full of anguish."
