Roswell Mills Burned

Arriving at Roswell, Union Gen. Kenner Garrard’s cavalry found the bridge across the Chattahoochee had been burned. Garrard then ordered his men to burn all mills and industrial buildings in Roswell. According to his report, one of the cotton mills destroyed had over $1 million in machinery and employed 400 workers.
