Inscription. June 25, 26, 1864. These troops being designated to assault Confederate forces on Kennesaw Spur, moved to this sector & were aligned astride the Burnt Hickory rd. at this point.

June 27. Walcuttís brigade (Harrowís div.) N. of rd.; G.A. Smithís astride the rd., & Lightburnís S. of it (M. L. Smithís div.), moved E. toward Kennesaw Spur where the attack fell upon Gen. S.G. Frenchís div., (Loringís A.C.), [CS] & the right of Hardeeís A.C. [CS] just S. of it.
