Much of the information provided on our battlefield trail interpretive signs comes directly from William R. Scaife's "Allatoona Pass: A Needless Effusion of Blood." This book remains one of the definitive works on this battle. We found Scaife's exhaustive research, descriptions, and interpretations of the battle fought among these hill to be invaluable. Mr. Scaife's grandfather was Dr. William Lovejoy Scaife, who served with General French's Division at the Battle of Allatoona as Regimental Surgeon for the 9th Texas Infantry Regiment.
