BLOUNT’S PLANTATION, Action at, May 2, 1863

“The action was of the rear-guard nature but it was a sharp fight and many regard it as the turning point in Col. Streight’s futile attempt to reach Rome, GA., where he had orders to destroy the extensive munitions factories in the city.

The day following the skirmish at Blount’s Plantation, Colonel Streight surrendered to General Forrest at Lawrence in Cherokee County. When Colonel Streight surrendered with his 1,466 men, he was surprised to discover that General Forrest had only 600 men. After the battle ended, the Blount house was used as a field hospital where wounded Union and Confederate soldiers received treatment and care.
