After Gettysburg, in order to mask entrenching operations along the Potomac river by General R. E. Lee, Confederate troops, led by General J.E.B. Stuart, engaged Union forces under General John Buford. The day-long battle east of the road resulted in 479 casualties. The Chaney house served s a hospital and at the Keller home Major H.D. McDaniel, later Governor of Georgia, survived his wounds.
