Battle of Brown's Mill Living History:
-August 26-28, 2018
The Battle of Brown's Mill was fought July 30, 1864, in Coweta County, Georgia, during the Atlanta Campaign of the American Civil War. Edward M. McCook's Union cavalry, on a daring raid to sever communications and supply lines in south-central Georgia, was defeated near Newnan, Georgia, by Confederate forces under Joseph Wheeler. The failure of McCook's column and a concurrent ill-fated raid by George Stoneman forced William T. Shermanto lay siege to the city of Atlanta.
On August 24-26, 2018, The Armory Guards are hosting an invitation-only living history at the original battlefield focused on Moreland's Regiment of Alabama Cavalry (CS), the 4th Indiana Cavalry (US), and a section of US Horse-drawn artillery.
This is a unique opportunity to interpret a critical juncture of the Atlanta campaign. Moreland’s Regiment arrived in Newnan, GA by train, fought a skirmish at the Newnan Depot, then marched six miles on foot into battle on July 30, 1864. While designated as cavalry, they were functioning as infantry.
