Union Forces Burned Pistol Factory in Griswoldville

Ten miles east of Macon, Union forces entered the small community of Griswoldville and burned Samuel Griswold’s pistol factory, which had supplied thousands of Confederate sidearms. Also burned was a mill and a soap and candle factory, a train of railroad cars with locomotive driving wheels, and approximately one third of the town.
