1. Stevenson's Line Marker
Inscription.  During demonstrations on Rocky Face and in Crow Valley, by 4th & 23d A.C. troops [US], the N. line of Dalton’s defense works crossed the road here.

Stevenson’s div. (Hood’s A.C.) [CS] held this sector, his left at Cheatham’s line, at Signal Station on Rocky Face; his right, at Ault’s Creek, E.

May 9, 1864. Stevenson’s men repulsed the 23d A.C. in Crow Valley, and the desperate attempt by Harker's and Wagner's brigades, Newton’s div., 4th A.C., to break the left of Stevenson’s at and near the top of Rocky Face, where Pettus’ and Brown’s brigades were posted behind stone breastworks that are still there.
