November 28th, 1864

Nov. 28th, 1864:

The Left Wing of Sherman’s army moves from the Ogeechee River at Fenn’s Bridge to Louisville and Bartow.  The Right Wing Occupies Riddleville and Wrightsville.  Both of the wings are getting closer to each other and will eventually merge as they close on Savannah.

Bartow, once a stop on the railroad, is now small quiet little town with most of its stores shuttered.  The Left Wing occupied the town and destroyed as much of the railroad as possible while they were there.

The Left Wing also moved into Louisville.  Today a stark reminder of a terrible time in our nations history still stands in the town of Louisville.  The pavilion here predates the Civil War and was used as a market to sell goods as well as slaves.
