On Nov. 29, 1864, Jackson`s and Geary's divisions, 20th Corps (Williams), of Gen. Sherman's army, destroyed the railroad from Spier's Turnout (Bartow), No. 11, CRR, through Bethany (Wadley), No. 10 1/2, CRR, to the Ogeechee River. next morning, both the railway and wagon bridges east of Bethany having been burned by the Confederate defenders, Jackson and Geary marched up the west bank and crossed the Ogeechee River at Cowart's Bridge, 2.5 miles SE of Louisville, then turned east to Eden Church, on Big Creek, where they rejoined Ward`s division and the corps trains which had moved on the direct road through Davisboro and Louisville.
