Civil War Heritage

The Civil War brought no military operations or engagements to Calhoun County. History tells us that the Confederate soldiers destroyed the cotton on more than one occasion to prevent it falling into enemy hands for aide or profit. At the close of the war, some Federal Troops were seen passing through the county on their return north. The true casualty to the young county was the drain of able-bodied men. Very few of the four hundred plus men from the county who wore the Confederate uniform returned home. Casualties from battles, exposure and poor health took its toll.
