Logan's 15th A.C. Line Marker  


June 25, 1864. These troops being designated to assault Confederate forces on Kennesaw Spur, moved to this sector & were aligned astride the Burnt Hickory rd. at this point.

June 27. Walcutt´s brigade (Harrow´s div.) N. of rd.; G.A. Smith´s div.), moved E. toward Kennesaw Spur where the attack fell upon Gen. S.G. French´s div., (Loring´s A.C.), [CS] & the right of Hardee´s A.C. [CS] just S. of it.

This assault failed to break the Confederate line; a similar one, at Cheatham Hill, 2.5 mi. S., was also devoid of results -- the 2 engagements known as the Battle of Kennesaw Mtn.
