Inscription
In mid to late 1863, Sweetwater was a supply and staging area for the Confederacy. It was the last secure depot on the East Tennessee and Georgia Railroad, south of the Union lines. In November 1863, General Longstreet, with 15,000 men, camped here for four days to provision, prior to his siege of Knoxville in early December 1863.
