Long Description:
Confederate Infantry Camp Stephens, named for Alexander H. Stephens, vice-president of Confederacy, was about ½ mile from here on McIntosh Road. Nearly all troops in the Confederate Army from Georgia were mobilized here and at the Cavalry Camp Milner, located at the present Griffin Municipal Park. The site of Camp Stephens is marked by a boulder erected by the UDC. Spalding County provided nine companies, Infantry, Cavalry and Artillery, to the Confederate Army and a number of militia companies which served locally. The Spalding Grays, Co. D, 2nd Batt. Of Inf., was the first to join the Southern forces.
