||Brig. Gen. Charles Walcutt was ordered to make a demonstration, with the six infantry regiments and
one battery that comprised his brigade, toward Macon to ascertain the disposition of enemy troops in that direction.
He set out on the morning of November 22, and after a short march he ran into some of Maj. Gen. Joseph
Wheeler’s cavalry and drove them beyond Griswoldville. Having accomplished his mission, Walcutt retired to a
position at Duncan’s Farm and fortified it with logs and rails to meet an expected Rebel attack force composed of
three brigades of Georgia State Militia. The Georgia Militia had been ordered from Macon to Augusta, thinking the
latter was Sherman’s next objective, and accidentally collided with Walcutt’s force. The Union force withstood
three determined charges before receiving reinforcements of one regiment of infantry and two regiments of cavalry.
The Rebels did not attack again and soon retired.
