Text:

Extreme left of Federal line on the Dallas - New Hope front where Johnston´s & Sherman´s forces had been in daily conflict since May 25, 1864.

June 3. Hovey´s (1st) Div., 23d A. C. [US] drove Armstrong´s cavalry [CS] from the road, thereby uncovering right of Confederate line -- Walker´s Div., Hardee´s Corps -- near the Foster house 1 mile, S. W.

Seizure of this road broke the 10-day stalemate & the opposing line shifted East to the Kennesaw front.
