Here, the intrenched line held by Maj. Gen. J. B. McPherson´s Army of the Tenn. [Federal] crossed the road; erected & occupied May 26 & abounded 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 Alltoona 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 [Confederate], faced McPherson. Repeated attempts by Hardee to crush the Federals, failed to dislodge them.
