Opposite to & N. of here was a 2-story white house (said to have been the residence of the Widow Pope) which figured prominently in this sector of the Battle of Atlanta, July 22, 1864.As Manigault's brigade moved to the assault on the Federal line at the Hurt house, its alignment was broken by the Pope house & out-buildings. While reforming, some of the 19th S.C. ascended to the 2d floor & fired into the Federal batteries at the R.R. cut.

Pressing forward, the 10th & 19th S.C., aided by the 28th Ala., penetrated the Federal line at the R.R. cut, seizing the batteries there & in a leftward drive, the DeGress battery.
