The W.H. Montfort farmhouse was built in the late 1840's on the eastern side of Gettysburg, and during the battle of Gettysburg the Montfort Farm was used as a field hospital by Maj. General Edward Johnson's Second Corps of the Confederate army, the "Stonewall Division", who brough his wounded soldiers from the fierce battle at Culp's Hill. Over 1,300 injured confederate soldiers were taken to the property, where they occupied the barn, house, and much of the farm itself. When the confederates retreated from Gettysburg they left 446 soldiers at the farm for another 28 days. 47 men who died at the Monfort Farm were buried there, and later disinterred to Richmond, Virginia.
