Jonesboro in Clayton County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Rather than risk a night battle, the columns detoured on a field road eastward & entered Jonesboro on the Morrow’s Station road which parallels the R. R. This caused considerable delay; it was well into the forenoon before Hardee’s A. C. & Anderson’s div. were in the embattled lines at Jonesboro where the 1st of the two battles was fought that afternoon.
