Sunday at the Museum: Sherman Comes to Milledgeville
Sunday, September 14 2:00 PM
Dr. Bob Wilson, GCSU Professor of History, will present "Sherman Comes to Milledgeville." The Georgia Penitentiary in Milledgeville went up in flames when Sherman's army occupied the town in November 1864. The Penitentiary was very much a military objective for Sherman, since they manufactured weapons, including the Georgia rifle, at the site. Dr. Wilson will discuss the history of "Penitentiary Square" in the old capital.
