Long Description:

He Helped Bring and Keep Fort Benning


Mallory Reynolds Flournoy (Oct. 21, 1882 - Apr. 26, 1920) leader in establishing Fort Benning and the Infantry School on the 182,000 acre military reservation south of Columbus lived here. The son of John F. Flournoy, outstanding citizen and developer of Columbus. Mallory Flournoy working with a C. of C. Committee during World War I was instrumental in establishing Camp Benning in a limited area east of Columbus. When that camp was abandoned, he suggested the area south of town with ample space and varied terrain that became the permanent military installation. His untiring effort to bring and keep the camp here impaired his health and he died soon afterward.
