Richmond Newspaper Speculated on Next Georgia Battle
The Richmond Times Dispatch printed an item speculating on where the next battle might take place in Georgia.
The Georgia battle Site. –About four miles east of Dallas, all the roads leading to Marietta or Atlantis would be covered by a line of five miles in length, and there is apparently no chance to flank the position unless the country can be traversed outside the made, which in said to be impracticable. It is possible a fight may occur there. Eighteen miles southeast of this spot, is the Chattahoochee river in its nearest appear on to Atlanta, say seven miles. Two miles west of the Chattahoochee is a favorable ridge fronting a good battle ground, and some say this will be the place.
