Long Description:

Johnston's Headquarters

During the fighting at Dallas, New Hope Church, Pickett's Mill & elsewhere along the opposing Confederate & Federal lines, General J. E. Johnston [Confederate] had h'dq'rs at the Wm. Wigley house (which stood near here) May 25 - June 1, 1864.

Posey Wigley (10 yr. old son of Wm. & Fanny), later recalled seeing Gen. Johnston at his widowed mother's house and removal of family and household goods to a place of safety - hence, Lt. T. B. Mackall's reference to "Widow Wigley's deserted house" as Johnston's headquarters.
