Text:

One of the two abortive attempts to break Johnston´s line, [CS] June 27, 1864, was made in this area by 3 Federal brigades. Deployed on the ridge W. of the stream & astride Burnt Hickory rd., they moved E. toward the Spur of the mountain, which was the center of the attack.

The left of the charging line entered the gorge between the Spur & Little Kennesaw; the right swung around the point where the Spur impinges on the road.

During this battle, Federal regiments from Missouri battled Cockrell´s Missouri brigade (French´s div., Loring´s Corps, Confederate), posted on Kennesaw Spur.
