"The Bomb proof"?[edit]

In the midst of this article is this attempt at a sentence:

"The Bomb proof written about by Cox, that three families survived the siege of Atlanta in August 1864 still exists."

The editor who created this sentence is now indicated by a red link, so there's no way to contact that person in order to ask what they intended. Did Cox refer to this house as "The bomb-proof house?" Does anyone know enough about Atlanta history (or about the book by General Jacob D. Cox that it is apparently referencing) to edit this sentence in such a way that it makes sense? I could just delete it, but I would rather save the intended content if possible.

You know what...I think I am going to assume that Cox actually did refer to the house in this way, and change the sentence to reflect this. If anyone knows differently, feel free to revert the edit or change it to reflect the facts...I just feel that the chances of anyone who knows enough about Atlanta history and Cox's book coming across this entry and actually correcting it are about nil, and I can't stand to leave the sentence reading the way it does now.

Grant Mansion[edit]

According to the Atlanta Preservation Center [1], the Lemuel P. Grant Mansion was built between 1854-56 and was never moved. That should make it tied for Oldest structure within the current city limits. MaxVeers (talk) 02:06, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
