Text:

Brig. Gen. Milo Hascall´s (2d) div., 23rd A.C. having crossed the Chattahoochee River at Isom´s Ferry (month of Soap Cr.), July 8, 1864, reached this point, evening July 17. This date marked the initial Federal moves upon Atlanta.

Hascall´s march was by routes now known as Mt. Vernon Rd. & Long Island Dr. ~ the Thomas Burdett farm being one of the landmarks cited in records as Hascall´s camping place.

Hascall´s position here was by way of occupying the gap between the 4th A.C. at Crossroads Ch. and Cox´s div. on Nancy´s Cr. near Old Cross keys. July 18, Hascall moved N.E. to join Cox: the 4th A.C., S.E. of Power´s Fy. Rd. to Buckhead.
