During the Spanish American War a typhoid outbreak at nearby Camp Alger resulted in troops being stationed at the Mill. The already weakened soldiers, numbering about 23,000, were ordered to march 32 miles west to Thoroughfare Gap taking only small shelter tents with them.
When the outbreak finally subsided, at least 34 men had succumbed to typhoid at the Gap.
Turn the Mill Around Campaign dedicates Stone D1134 to the men stationed at the Gap during the Spanish American War.
