Stoneman's cavalry appeared at Macon, having been detached from Sherman's army in front of Atlanta with a view to destroying the Macon works and releasing the Federal prisoners at Andersonvilled on learning by what sort of force they had been repelled. Again, in the latter part of November of the same year, Gen. Sherman, having begun his march to the sea, the fifteenth corps of his army, with Kilpatrick's cavalry forming the extreme rig sent out of his way, to Macon, but could not be got any further on account of the previous wrecking of the railroads by Sherman.
