The Federal defense at Allatoona included a military
service road that crossed the Tennessee Wagon
Road-noted by a star on the map. The Military Service
Road connected the fortified positions of the Eastern
Redoubt to the headquarters of the 4th Minnesota.
After the Battle for Allatoona Pass, the 4th Minnesota
was one of the regiments in General William T. Sherman's
March to the Sea.

Prior to the Battle of Allatoona Pass, Union forces used
the mill dam to flood the valley causing difficulty for
Sears' Mississippi Brigade as they maneuvered to gain
position for the morning attack. Today, the valley lies
under the waters of Lake Allatoona.
