The Union Army of 65,000 men under the command of General Wm. T. Sherman left Atlanta on November 15, 1864. Only the left wing of 30,000 men entered Milledgeville. The advance units arrived here on the 22nd. The right wing marched via Clinton and Gordon and joined the left wing at Sandersville. More than 25,000 soldiers camped at this site on Nov. 22-25. The McKinley house, 500 yards north of this point, served as headquarters for Generals Jackson and Geary. The toll bridge which stood 50 yards below the present structure was destroyed on November 25.
