Howard's 4th A.C. was aligned along this ridge (Mt. Vernon Rd.) from a point .5 mi. N.E. of Crossroads Ch. to 1.5 mi. S.W.. at the river. These troops reached this ridge July 12, 13, 1864, having crossed the Chattahoochee at Power's & Isom's ferries. Hascall`s div. (23d A.C.) was intrenched on Howard`s left (along M. Vernon Rd.)., when both lines adjusted July 14.

Sherman, from h'dq'rs here (July 17-18), directed initial movements of Federal forces, from Roswell to Pace's Ferry, to Atlanta.

From these environs the 23rd A.C. marched via Sandy Springs to Old Cross Keys, July 17; the 4th, via Power's Fy. Rd. to Buckhead July 18.
