Tallassee had one of three civil war armories. General Wilson made it a mission to destroy all three. He had an old map of the Tallassee area and crossed the river a couple of miles above where the armory actually was. While crossing the river his arm was caught by Confederate Homeguard and Franklin Academy cadets. Wilson moved on to Columbus, Ga without destroying the Tallassee Armory. It is reportedly the only standing civil war armory left in the country.
