Pickett’s Mill Battlefield Historic Site

In May 1864, the Confederate troops at Pickett’s Mill fought for victory on the battlefield against the Federal Army, resulting in a week delay of the Federal advance on Atlanta. Today, the Pickett’s Mill Battlefield Historic Site is one of the best-preserved Civil War battlefields in the nation. Travel roads used by Federal and Confederate troops, see earthworks, and walk through the same ravine where hundreds died. One of two original cannons used during this battle is now on display in the museum, on loan from the Atlanta History Center. Stay overnight nearby at Red Top Mountain State Park’s cabins or campground.

Admission: Adults (18–61) $5.50; Seniors (62+) $3.50; Youths (6–17): $3
