Battle of Culloden Fought

About 30 miles west of Macon, a skirmish known as the Battle of Culloden was fought as a part of Wilson’s Union force, moving toward Macon, encountered the Worrill Grays near Culloden. The Grays - a company of Georgia Reserve Militia consisting of 200 teens, old men, and wounded veterans - was forced to withdraw after a two-hour battle with a much larger Union force. [There is some uncertainty about the actual date of the battle, with it possibly having occurred on April 20 - and even as late as April 25.]
