The stalemate on the Kennesaw Mtn. front was broken when the rt. wing of Sherman´s forces was extended S. on the old Sandtown road to this point.

This eventuated July 1, 1864, when Brig. Gen. Milo S. Hascall´s (2d) div., 23d A. C. [US] moved to this strategic position which threatened Johnston´s lines [CS] of communication & retreat -- the State R. R. & highways E. of here & S. of Kennesaw Mountain.
