1. Logan’s 15th A.C. Line Marker
Inscription. June 25, 26, 1864. These troops being designated to assault Confederate forces on Kennesaw Spur, moved to this sector & were aligned astride the Burnt Hickory rd. at this point.

June 27. Walcutt’s brigade (Harrow’s div.) N. of rd.; G.A. Smith’s astride the rd., & Lightburn’s S. of it (M. L. Smith’s div.), moved E. toward Kennesaw Spur where the attack fell upon Gen. S.G. French’s div., (Loring’s A.C.), [CS] & the right of Hardee’s A.C. [CS] just S. of it.

This assault failed to break the Confederate line; a similar one, at Cheatham Hill, 2.5 mi. S., was also devoid of results -- the 2 engagements known as the Battle of Kennesaw Mtn.
