Maj. Gen. W.T. Sherman´s Headquarters
May 19-23, 1864
Sherman [US] occupied the Hargis house for three days of reorganization of forces in the campaign that ended at Atlanta.

Assuming the Johnston´s army [CS] had moved, from Adairsville, directly on Kingston & the river crossings S., May 18, led Sherman to concentrate his forces here -- only to discover that Johnston had gone directly to Cassville where, without making a stand, he retreated to Allatoona, May 20th. Sherman countered May 23, by moving due S.
