Battle of Griswoldville The Advance from East Macon
Forming line of battle with Anderson’s brigade on the right, the Athens and Augusta Battalions in the center, McCoy’s brigade on the left, Mann’s brigade in reserve and the State Line regiments deployed as skirmishers in his front, Phillips advanced to Griswoldville, only to find that the enemy had retired.
Unaware that Walcutt had halted and intrenched about 1 ½ miles east, south of the railroad, to protect the right of Sherman’s army then moving on the Irwinton road, Phillips reassembled his command and began moving it east of town to await further orders.
