Long Description:
This old academy, built in 1836, was in the line of fire during the Battle of LaFayette in the War Between the States. General Braxton Bragg, who had his headquarters in LaFayette, planned the Battle of Chickamauga under on old oak tree that stood in front of this building and was known as "Bragg's Oak."
