Mountain View in Clayton County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Those electing to go south were carried, with household goods, in army wagons from Atlanta to Rough and Ready where, by truce agreement, they were transferred in Hood’s wagons [CS] to the rail-head at Lovejoy’s. From there they continued south on the Macon & Western R. R.
