1. Floyd Springs Marker
Inscription. Garrardís Cavalry [US], having left Villanow, May 14, 1864, passed Floyd Springs May 15, enroute to Farmerís Bridge & Rome. After scouting toward Rome, the Cav. withdrew & camped here.

May 16. Returning toward Layís Ferry (near Resaca), Garrard met Davisí (2d) div. 14th A.C. [US], enroute S. to Rome. Garrard informed Davis that Farmerís Bridge, 8mi. N. of Rome, was at Armuchee Cr., not an Oostanaula River crossing. This was news to Davis, who had been informed otherwise -- due to confusing reports at headquarters.

Davisí march from Resaca to Rome was predicated on a river crossing at Farmerís Bridge.
