1. Left of the Confederate Line Marker
Inscription. Hardee’s A.C. was on the left of General J.E. Johnston’s line [CS] – Dallas - New Hope front. May 26 - June 4, 1864. Dallas was the southern-most objective of Federal forces in their flanking march around Allatoona.

During the Federal occupation of the Dallas - New Hope line, the Confederate forces maintained parallel lines of defense from Dallas to & beyond New Hope Church, which checked [US] Sherman’s shift back to the State R.R. Daily conflict marked the period which ended when Federal thrusts N.E. forced Johnston to retire Eastward.
