Text:

This pioneer sanctuary stood some 200 ft. W., atop the hill. Long since vanished, its site is indicated by the HUTCHESON CEMETERY.
It was cited as a landmark on maps of military operations by Federal armies moving E. toward the Macon & Western R. R., & numerous references appear in reports & dispatches relating thereto, dated August 29, 30, 1864.

This locality happened to be of strategic importance in that it was midway the wide front of Federal forces moving E.: the Army of the Tennessee on the right, at Bethsaida Ch., the 4th & 23d corps on the left, enroute to the railroad at & below Rough & Ready.
