Near here stood the antebellum, one-story farm house of Marcus Long, a Confederate soldier who fell on a Virginia battlefield.

The house, cited several times in Official Records, was a prominent landmark in movements of the Federal 4th and 23rd Corps from Red Oak on the A. & W.P. R. R. to the Macon R. R. at and below Rough & Ready, Aug. 30 and 31, 1864.

The cutting of the two railroads forced General Hood to abandon Atlanta before he heard the final results of the fighting at Jonesboro.
