New Hope Church

May 25 - 26, 1864

Paulding County, Georgia

The New Hope Church battlefield has been largely overrun by modern development. However, a small section of Confederate earthworks can be found adjacent to a recreated version of the wartime church. Nearby, visitors can see the 5-acre ravine that the Federal troops called the "Hell Hole."
