The Battle of Pickett's Mill
May 27, 1864

After the Union defeat at New Hope Church, Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman ordered Maj. Gen. O. O. Howard to attack Gen. Joseph E. Johnston’ s seemingly exposed right flank. The Confederates were ready for the attack, which did not unfold as planned because supporting troops never appeared. The Rebels repulsed the attack causing high casualties.
