Near Atlanta in DeKalb County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Hardee at Road Fork
Had Hardee continued on the Fayetteville Rd. to a point well in rear of Blair’s 17th A.C., he would have conformed with Hood’s explicit orders therefor. A lack of definite knowledge of Federal positions, maps and adequate guides in a forest wilderness, resulted in confusion and consequent misdirection of his troops.
