Inscription. As Sherman approached the Kennesaw line, Hood's Corps struck his right on June 22 at Kolb Farm. The Federals, warned, repulsed Hood with a loss of 1,000 men. Sherman decided to assult and cut the Southern center at Cheatham Hill and Little Kennesaw, and then destroy the fragments of Johnston's army. In these attacks on June 27 the entrenched Confederates had 800 casualties while Sherman lost 2,500 men. Again the Federals restorted to less costly flanking tactics, which were to force Johnston to give up his Kennesaw position.
