Marker Text A wealthy farm area in 1861. In Civil War, supported Texas with goods, funds and men. 2 companies from here were in famed Hood's Texas Brigade-- one company had only 9 men in one living by 1865. Young boys, old men and the partially disabled formed 5 home guard and state companies. The county clothed its own soldiers. The Courthouse, then on this site, had a sewing room for that work. Cooperating were homefolk using looms, cotton cards. People ate sparingly, had few new clothes. By 1864, so much was given to war effort that not a store was open in Montgomery. (1965)
