General Carter slept here

This house, built in 1856, still stands on Sextons Creek near the mouth of Possum Trot, on present-day U S 421 between Manchester and McKee. In December 1862, Brigadier General S. P. Carter is said to have spent the night in the house when he was on his way to Manchester to assemble a regiment-size force of Union cavalry for a raid into east Tennessee to blow up railroad bridges.
