Old Cheshire Bridge Road  Marker  


In 1864 the Old Cheshire Bridge Rd., leading E. from Buckhead generally on the trace of the present E. Pace´s Fy. Rd., crossed this area & ran S.E. to N. Fork Peachtree Cr. & beyond.

Howard´s 4th A.C. (Federal), marching from Power´s Ferry, encamped at Buckhead, July 18.

When it was found that a gap in the Federal line N.E. of Atlanta required additional forces, two divs. of Howard´s A.C. were shifted to the left. Stanley´s div., July 19, followed by Wood on the 20th, left Buckhead on Cheshire Bridge Rd. & via the old Williams Mill Road (Briarcliff), joined Schofield´s 23d A.C.
