1. Hascallís Div. Camped Marker
Inscription. Brig. Gen. Milo Hascallís (2d) div., 23d A. C., having crossed the Chattahoochee River at Isomís Ferry (mouth of Soap Cr.), July 8, 1864, reached this point, evening July 17. This date marked the initial Federal moves upon Atlanta.

Hascallís march was by routes now known as Mt. Vernon Rd. & Long Island Dr. -- the Thomas Burdett farm being one of the landmarks cited in records as Hascallís camping place.

Hascallís position here was by way of occupying the gap between the 4th A. C. at Crossroads Ch & Coxís div. on Nancyís Cr. near Old Cross Keys. July 18, Hascall moved N. E. to join Cox; the 4th A.C., S. E. on Powerís Fy. Rd. to Buckhead.
