Rocky Comfort Creek
On Nov. 28, 1864, the Left Wing (14th and 20th Corps) of Gen. Sherman´s army [Union] moved from Davisboro to Louisville, the main body on this road. Jackson´s and Geary´s divisions, 20th Corps, along the Central Railroad, and Morgan´s and Baird´s divisions (12 miles NW).
When Baird´s division, which had camped on the road from Fenn´s Bridge, reached this point, the bridge over Rocky Comfort Creek had been destroyed by Wheeler´s cavalry [Confederate].
Pontoniers of the 58th Indiana Infantry bridged the stream with pontoons in time to permit Baird and Morgan to clear the bridge without seriously delaying the main body.
