National Historic Site
Atlanta Campaign
On May 19, 1864, Johnston,
entrenched on the ridge
east of this marker,
planned to give battle
but Sherman threatened
his flank and his corps
commanders objected
to the position.
He therefore withdrew
to Allatoona Pass.
Rather than attack
this strong position
Sherman moved past it
toward New Hope Church.

Erected by National Park Service-U.S. Department of the Interior.
