    magnolia springs state park is located five miles north of millen on US 25. this beautiful state park offers camping, hiking, canoeing, fishing, and swiming. for those interested in civil war history part of magnolia state park is on the site of fort lawton. fort lawton was the confederacy's largest union prisoner of war camp. it was built in 1864 to relieve the over crowding at andersonville prison. fort lawton covered 40 acres and was designed for 40,000 prisoners. in november 1864 the confederates were warned of union general william t. sherman's march to the sea and transfered fort lawton's prisoners to savannah. sherman's troops found the abandoned camp and general sherman burned the town of millen's junction.
