Maj. Gen. C.C. Washburn, Federal commander in Memphis, lived in a house which stood here at the time of Gen. Forrest's dawn raid. He escaped capture by decamping through the back door in his night clothes. His uniform and sword, seized by raiders under Lt. Col. Jesse Forrest, were returned next day under flag of truce.
