The Battle of Pickett's Mill: Along the Dead-Line
The Battle of Pickett’s Mill was fought on May 27th, 1864 in rural Paulding County, Georgia. It was the second of three battles fought along a line of entrenchments running from Dallas, Georgia northeast to the area around the mill owned by the Widow Pickett. The battle was a bloody defeat for the Union. The overall Union commander, Major General William Tecumseh Sherman, left it completely out of his own memoir.
