Hardee's Corps at Jonesboro Marker  



Text:

Sept. 1, 1864. The withdrawal of S. D. Lee´s A. C. toward Atlanta left Hardee facing the same Federal forces of the preceding day. To meet an attack on his rt., he shifted Cleburne´s & Carter´s divs. [CS] to an extended line forming a salient angle (north of the Warren house) with one from the east side of the railroad. The attack by Davis´ 14th A. C. [US] at the salient drove Govan´s brigade to a 2d position where the massed forces of Hardee withstood not only the 14th but Stanley´s 4th (which moved in E. of the R. R.) till night ended the battle & enabled Hardee to withdraw to Lovejoy´s."
