Ante-bellum cross-roads settlement; name taken from Jane Porter's novel: 'Thaddeus of Warsaw.' May 7, 1864, Kilpatrick's Cav., having crossed Taylor's Ridge at Nickajack Gap, moved to Gordon's Springs where it was joined by Ireland's brigade (Geary's Div., 20th A.C.). May 8, these troops moved to Villanow to meet & support McPherson's forces (US) moving E. from Ship's & Gordon Springs Gaps in Taylor's Ridge.

McPherson's troops reached Villanow at noon & continued E. to Snake Creek Gap - a surprise move to outflank Johnston's forces at Dalton. The seizure of Snake Cr. Gap was effected while Geary's Div. (20th A.C.) (US) attacked Dug Gap.
