Dallas was purchased in 1852 and was incorporated into the State of Georgia as a city in 1854. Union General William T. Sherman planned to take over Dallas because it had well-situated county roads that led to larger cities. Confederate troops delayed Sherman’s journey to Atlanta through three battles at New Hope Church, Dallas and Pickett’s Mill. Today, Pickett’s Mill Battlefield in Dallas is a Georgia state park that preserves the Pickett’s Mill battlefield.
