>>>———>Here stood the Rough and Ready Tavern or Old Bagley House which was at different times a residence, tavern, general store, arsenal & probably headquarters of Gen. Hardee Aug. 30, 1864. To this place, mentioned in "Gone With The Wind," the people of Atlanta were evacuated for further transport south. At Rough and Ready Station on the Macon & Western R.R. stood a water tank & wood shed for the engines. Fed. troops cut the railroad 1 mile below here Aug. 31, 1864, completing the isolation of Atlanta. Timbers from the Tavern, torn down in 1917, serve as sills in the nearby McBrayer house.
