Text:

Aug. 29, 1864. The 10th Mich. reg´t, in advance of Davis´ 14th A. C. [US], en route from Red Oak to Jonesboro, encountered Armstrong´s & Martin´s cav. [CS] posted at the church, where a spirited delaying action forced the 10th to withdraw.

Aug. 30. The 14th A. C. advanced to the Church & after a brief halt, moved in 2 columns to the Fayetteville Rd.; Baird´s div. marched N. E. to the Marcus Long house, then S. to Couch´s (at Riverdale on State Highway 139). Morgan´s & Carlin´s divs. moved S. E. on a winding road to the Evans farm (also at Riverdale) where all were aligned along the old Fayetteville Rd.
