Hood's Corps at Battle of Ruff's Mill Marker  


When Johnston´s forces [CS] withdrew from Kennesaw Mtn., July 3, 1864, they occupied a double line of field works extending from Smyrna S. W. to Nickajack Creek at Dodgen´s Mill, more or less along this, the old Concord Road.

Hood´s Corps held the left, (S.W.) sector of the lines which crossed the road at this point.

July 4. Federal forces moved up, investing the entire Confederate position. Dodge´s 16th A. C. [US] crossed Nickajack at Ruff´s Mill & late P.M¨ Fuller´s brigade (4th div.) moved up this rd., the attack falling upon Stevenson´s div. [CS], driving it from the first line of works.
