Text of marker: "BATTLE OF GRISWOLDVILLE. On Nov. 22, 1864, the Right Wing (15th and 17th Corps) of Gen. Sherman's army [USA] moved S.E. from Clinton (near Gray) towards Gordon and Irwinton on its destructive March to the Sea. Walcutt's brigade, with two guns of Arndt's Michigan Battery, was posted on the right to protect the movement from the persistent harassment of Wheeler's cavalry [CSA] from the direction of Macon. Near Griswoldville (7 miles S.W.), Walcutt was attacked by a division of Georgia Militia [CSA] under Brig. Gen. P. J. Phillips. After three hours of fighting in which both sides suffered severely, Phillips was forced to withdraw his command to Macon. 084-20 GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1957"
