I really like this view of downtown Macon. You have a statue of the Confederate soldier, an early business building, and the County courthouse from around the turn of the century, and a more modern business building.
Macon survived Sherman’s March to the sea because it was on the other side of the Ocmulgee River. Macon did not escape completely unscathed. The Holt Mansion is known as the “Cannonball House,” because a Canonball went through the facade. Luckily the town was not burned, and their is still a lot of beautiful antebellum architecture.
