Text:

May 19, 1864 Butterfield´s (3d) Div. 20th A.C. Moving S.E., from McDow´s, left the road here & marched to the Hawkins Price house, enroute to Kingston.

The 1st & 2nd Divs., on roads W., had the same objective - an erratic move by Sherman who assumed that Johnston´s Army had retreated to Kingston.

Butterfield´s march disclosed that Johnston´s Army was at Cassville, not Kingston. The 23rd A.C. (Schofield) marched on this road from McDow´s, reaching Cassville at dark.
