Schofield's 23rd A.C., the first of the Federal forces to cross the Chattahoochee River at Isom's Ferry on July 8, remained on this ridge from July 8 to 17, 1864. On the 17th the corps began its march to make contact with McPherson's Army of the Tennessee at Old Cross Keys. Cox's (3d) followed by Hascall's (2d) division took the road (Mount Vernon) to Sandy Springs Camp Ground, one mile northeast.

To present a wider corps front to the southeast, Hascall's division detoured (via Long Island Drive) to Mount Paran Road, where it camped at or near the Burdett farm that night - moving ahead northeast the next day to join Cox on the Cross Keys road.
