Kingston in Bartow County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Hardee's Corps at Kingston
Sherman's [US] error in assuming that all of Johnston's army [CS] had marched from Adairsville, as Hardee had, to Kingston, caused him to order his forces concentrated here -- discovering later that the Confederate Army was 5.5 miles E. at Cassville & not at the river S. of Kingston.
Erected 1953 by Georgia Historical Commission. (Marker Number 008-37.)
