If you are into the Civil War and its history this is a must see. The scenery is breathtaking and the trails are well kept and their is a story of a piece of this battle at every marker. Their is a film and a small but very informative museum before you hit the trails. Make sure you bring some... More

We almost skipped the site but I am so glad we didn't. We arrived late in the day about a hour before close and the very nice ranger was very encouraging about us going ahead and walking the big trail. They provide a map to a number of marked trails with stops explaining areas of the battlefield The trail is... More

Quite corner of Georgia that roared with activity in a flanking attempt by Gen. Sherman prior to moving on to Atlanta. Well preserved, quite walks, trail and history that any history buff should note. Parking fee. Not open every day.

We stopped at this state of Georgia operated battlefield on May 30th and immediately went to the Visitor Center. The fellas behind the desk were very engaging and knowledgeable. They pointed me into their video about the battle, which was excellent. Then, I was taken into the museum and was given a guided tour of the battlefield and an hour... More

The state of Georgia has saved this site from development. There is a good museum with a very friendly staff, several books for sale, and an informative introductory film. The battlefield consists of several trails of varying length, none of which are suitable for small children. You can spend several hours walking the trails while using the informative pamphlets to...

There are several hiking trails through this park, and I will warn you, they are difficult to traverse. It is quite hilly, and the trails are fairly primitive. While you can see where this battle took place, you can not see much evidence of it.

This is a Georgia state park and open Thursday through Saturday. My brother and I and two of his Air Force buddies are Civil War buffs and we make a trip south very fall to follow a certain campaign. This year, we did the Atlanta Campaign. We visited almost everything from Ringgold to the Cyclorama. I like this place the... More

This battlefield gives one a taste of what it must have been like to be a soldier in the field. After visiting the small, but well displayed museum and watching an interesting film, we set-out on the Red Loop trail. The area is filled with ravines as well as lots of trenches that were dug. The paths are filled with... More

Pickett's Mill Battlefield offers the opportunity to walk the grounds of a well preserved US civil war battlefield. This site was part of the Federal campaign against Atlanta, GA. Although a small engagement in comparison to other battles, the Confederate victory did succeed in delaying the Federal advance against Atlanta. There is a small museum with a good background of...
