In the closing days of the Civil War, as General James H. Wilson advanced on Selma, with the purpose of knocking out this important center of munitions and supply to the Confederacy, Mr. Driskell, his wife, their two sons: Will and Tom, and their three daughters became forced hosts to General Wilson. General Wilson made his headquarters in an upstairs bedroom and for this reason the house was saved. Driskell’s store, cotton gin containing 63 bales of cotton, and warehouse were burned to the ground by the Union Army.
