Inscription. On adjacent hill was the right or western end of the intrenched line held by Gen. T.J. Wood’s div. of the Federal 4th A.C., July 20-22, 1864. The line extended E. 1.5 mi. to intersection of Rock Spring & Cumberland Roads.

Wood advanced from this position in the general move toward Atlanta, early the 22d, where he occupied a sector of the line from which siege operations were carried on until terminated Sept. 2, by the surrender of the city.
