- It was from these earthwork battlements that a dwindling Confederate force held out for nearly two years before being taken by the marauding General William Tecumseh Sherman. Upon its surrender in 1864, the destructive swath across Georgia known as Sherman's March to the Sea was concluded, and the backbone of the Confederacy lay broken. A small museum, visitor's center and a few trails surround the restored battlements.
