Robert McAfee House
After the seizure of Big Shanty (Kennesaw) by Sherman´s forces, June 9, 1864, Brig. Gen. Kenner Garrard´s cav. div. [US] was posted on the left flank during operations on the Kennesaw Mountain front.
Garrard´s cav. guarded Noonday Creek valley from Woodstock to the left of the 17th A. C. (in the rugged Brushy Mtn. area), with patrols on the Canton, Bell´s Ferry & Alabama roads. Daily conflict with his opponent -- Maj. Gen. Joseph Wheeler´s Cavalry [CS] -- marked the period from June 11 to July 3.
The Robert McAfee house was Garrard´s h´dq´rs, during a portion of this period.
