The Civil War role of Macons churches and congregations will be highlighted in a new interpretive marker to be dedicated Wednesday morning.
Rabbi Larry Schlesinger, a member of the Macon Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee, will be presiding over the 11:30 a.m. ceremony in the First Presbyterian Church parking lot at the corner of Mulberry and First streets.
The public is invited to the dedication of the marker that traces Macons religious roots and includes observations from Confederate Capt. Thomas Key from Alabama.
Key noted during his 1864 visit that Macon is truly a church-going city.
The committee is commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and will present additional markers in coming months.
