Long Description:
CONFEDERATE HOSPITALS

In Newnan between 1862 and 1865 were seven Confederate hospitals -- Bragg, Buckner, "College Temple," "Coweta House," Foard, Gamble and Pinson's Springs. More than 10,000 Confederate sick and wounded and about 200 Federal soldiers wounded in the Battle at Brown's Mill were cared for in these hospitals and in private homes. The hospitals were directed and supervised by Samuel H. Stout, Army Medical Director Department of Tennessee. Loyal men and women of the county rendered valuable aid.
