Pickett’s Mill State Historic Site Trails Professional Review and Guide
"During the spring of 1864, Union Gen. William T. Sherman led his troops into Georgia to engage the Rebel army and capture Atlanta. In his reports, Sherman made little mention of the May 27 fight at Pickett’s Mill.
The likely reason is that, among a string of victories, the battle was a stunning defeat brought about by poor field command and misunderstanding of the site’s terrain. The site remained virtually unchanged in the decades after the war and is today considered among the best preserved Civil War battlefields in the nation."
