Long Description:
BATTLE OF BROWN'S MILL

On July 27, 1864, Brig. Gen. E.M. McCook with 3,600 Federal cavalry began a raid to destroy railroads south of Atlanta and release 32,000 Federal prisoners at Andersonville. Three miles south of Newnan on July 30th, Maj. Gen. Joseph Wheeler with 1,400 Confederate cavalry caught and routed the Federals, captured about 2,000 men, several ambulances, a full battery and released 500 Confederate prisoners. Here General Wheeler whipped the "pick" of the Federal cavalry and saved Newnan from capture and possible destruction.
