1. Battle of New Hope Church Marker
Inscription. Lt. Gen. J. B. Hood’s A.C. [CS], having marched from the Etowah River, reached New Hope Ch., May 25, 1864, in time to halt Gen. J. W. Geary’s (2d) div., 20th A.C. [US], which had detoured near Owens’ Mill enroute to Dallas by New Hope.

Checked by Hood’s outposts near the mill, the Federals advanced & struck Stewart’s div. [CS] astride the road at this point -- the left brigade (Stovall’s) in the cemetery, with no intrenchments.

Followed then several hours of bitter conflict -- late afternoon & night -- in rain & thunderstorm. Battle renewed next day.
