Narrowly Missed DestructionYou are standing in front of the Miller-Haynes house, known as the Cannonball House because of structural damage it sustained from Union cannon fire during the Battle of Blountville on September 22, 1863. During the artillery exchanges, Confederate forces were largely behind and east of the house, while Col. John W. Foster's Union forces were positioned west of here at Blountville Cemetery. Several cannonballs struck the house's western side.
