1. Confederate Line Marker
Inscription.  Here, the intrenched line held by Gen. J. E. Johnstonís forces [CS] during the fighting on the Dallas - New Hope Ch. front, crossed the road; line erected and occupied May 26 and abandoned June 4, 1864.

Three of the 10 miles of this line were on the summit of Ellsberry Mountain, NE.

In the 10 days of constant fighting between Confederate and Federal forces, no advantage was gained -- a stalemate that was broken by Shermanís [US] flanking movement around the Confederate right at Old Allatoona Church 11 miles NE in Cobb County.
 
Erected 1983 by Georgia Department of Natural Resources. (Marker Number 110-11.)
