1. Henry Lester House Marker
Inscription. May 24, 25, 1864. Hardee’s corps, of Gen. J. E. Johnston’s army [CS], having marched on the 23rd from Stegall's Station (Emerson), passed this way to Powder Springs, where it camped until 3 a.m. of the 25th, when it counter-marched toward Dallas because of McPherson’s [US] approach to that place.

At this time, Hardee’s troops formed the left flank of Johnston’s army.

Enroute back to Dallas, Cleburne’s div. of the corps detoured N. from here to the George Darby house (near Macland Rd.) where it halted until ordered forward to New Hope Church that night.
