Ocmulgee National MonumentDuring the Civil War, Macon, Georgia was a thriving city, serving as a major transportation, medical, and manufacturing center. In 1864, Federal officers were being held at Camp Oglethorpe, a prisoner of war camp. Two battles were fought in Macon; both battles took place here at the Dunlap farm. The first battle occurred on July 30, 1864 and is known as the Battle of Dunlap Hill. The second battle occurred on November 20-21, 1864 and is known as the Battle of Walnut Creek. Never taken by force, the city surrendered to Federal forces on April 20, 1865, nine days after General Robert E. Lee's surrender.
