1. Loganís Corps Moves to Hendersonís Mill Marker
Inscription. July 18, 1864. Loganís troops, having detoured from Shallow Fd. Rd. to Browningís Court House (TUCKER), to co-operate with Garrardís cav, in the destruction of the Georgia R.R. at Stone Mtn., remained in this vicinity while Lightburnís brigade was sent to support Garrard.

When Lightburn returned, Logan withdrew the corps 1.5 mi. W. to Hendersonís Mill where it camped that night.

This withdrawal served two purposes: to make a more compact front for the Army of the Tennessee [US] & to get an adequate supply of water not available at Browningís.
