Smyrna in Cobb County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Battle of Ruff's Mill
Late p.m., Fuller’s men again advanced, supported by Sweeney’s 2nd div., and after a bitter struggle seized the first line of works on Hood’s rt. near the present Gann Cemetery.
This Federal assault on Johnston’s left & the one at Smyrna, on his rt., were incidental to his retreat from Kennesaw to the river. Col. Edward Noyes, 39th O.V.V.I. (Governor of Ohio 1872-1874), lost a leg in this battle.
Erected 1984 by Georgia Department of Natural Resources. (Marker Number 033-74.)
