More than 3 millions pounds of high-quality gunpowder for Confederate Army and Navy were manufactured in a 26-building complex stretching 2 miles along the Augusta Canal. Col G.W. Rains, who designed and built the Works, asked that the chimney remain standing after the war as a monument to the Confederate dead.
