Atlanta Campaign

On May 19, 1864, Johnston entrenched on the ridge east of this marker planned to give battle but Sherman threatened his flank and his Corps commanders objected to the position.

He therefore withdrew to Allatoona pass. Rather than attack this strong position, Sherman moved past it toward New Hope Church.
