Griswoldville Battlefield

The Battle of Griswoldville occurred on November 22, 1864. It was fought near the industrial town of Griswoldville that contained a Confederate pistol factory and other mills. Confederate militia forces under Gen. Pleasant Philips attacked Union forces in a pitched battle. The Union army repulsed the attack and the militia retired with numerous casualties. The battle was a Union victory, but the bravery of the Georgia militiamen who charged repeatedly into heavy fire, many of whom were older men and youths too old or too young for regular military service, is not forgotten.
