1. Federal Line Marker
Inscription. Here, the intrenched line held by Maj. Gen. J. B. McPherson’s Army of the Tenn. [US] crossed the road; erected & occupied May 26 & abandoned June 1, 1864.

These troops were the right of Federal forces on the Dallas - New Hope Ch. front which had been halted in a flanking move around the Allatoona Mts. by Gen. J. E. Johnston’s forces, deployed to oppose the federal move back to the State R.R..

From lines 4 mi. E., Hardee’s A.C., of Johnston’s Army [CS], faced McPherson. Repeated attempts by Hardee to crush the Federals, failed to dislodge them.
