As Wilson's Federal Cavalry moved toward Macon, near this spot on Wednesday, April 19, 1865, some of them attacked a small Confederate force, "The Dixie Rangers." Greatly outnumbered, "The Rangers" fought with gallantry, gradually withdrawing from the field. A detachment from the Federal 4th Indiana Cavalry captured the flag of "The Rangers" in this skirmish. Federal soldiers were again in Barnesville on May 5, 1865, when troops from the First Division, Wilson's Federal Cavalry, in pursuit of Jefferson Davis, camped here that night.
