1. Gravelly Plateau & Two Run Creek Marker
Inscription. May 19, 1864: Butterfield´s (3d) Div., 20th A.C. [US], moving S.E., from McDow´s, left the road here & marched to the Hawkins Price house, enroute to Kingston.

The 1st & 2nd Divs. [US], on roads W., had the same objective - an erratic move by Sherman who assumed that Johnston´s Army [CS] had retreated on Kingston.

Butterfield´s march disclosed that Johnston´s Army was at Cassville , not Kingston. The 23rd A.C. (Schofield) [US] marched on this road from McDow´s, reaching Cassville at dark.
