To a house which stood nearby, belonging to Dr. J. B. Armstrong, Brigadier General John Hunt Morgan brought his bride, the former Martha Ready, of Murfreesboro, when establishing his cavalry command in this area. The house served as his headquarters until shortly preceding his departure on his ill-fated Ohio Raid in the summer of 1863.
