Marker text: PROVOST GUARD CAMPSITE
The 3rd Wisconsin and the 107th New York Regiments, having been detailed for provost duty, encamped on this square, November 22-25, 1864. The State Arsenal on the north side of the square was burned. The magazine, which stood on the opposite side, was destroyed with explosives. Considerable damage was wrought to the churches and the Statehouse. The State Library was plundered and books were destroyed. Otherwise, little permanent damage was done to Milledgeville's houses and public buildings.
