Georgia battlefield supporters set events

The Brown’s Mill Battlefield Association, which supports a planned park at the scene of an 1864 cavalry clash during the Atlanta Campaign, is planning a series of events that culminates with a barbecue fund-raiser.

Friends President Carolyn Turner said the lecture series is planned through July and is meant to increase membership and make the public aware of the site's history.

The Picket wrote about the group's plans in a February post. The Friends are working on the site a few miles outside of Newnan, southwest of Atlanta.

There is no charge for the lectures. Topics include Newnan hospitals, Confederate cavalry figure Joe Wheeler (left), Lee and Grant at Appomattox and documentation of the Brown's Mill site.

The culminating July 30 event will feature a barbecue meal at $10 a plate. The group will sell other items, including glass totems, aprons and T-shirts.
