July 4, 1864. Maj. Gen. F. P. Blair's 17th A. C. of McPherson's Army of the Tennessee & Stoneman's cavalry [US], moved from Sandtown rd. E. on this, the old Turner's Ferry rd. to outflank Johnston's Smyrna - Ruff's Mill line [CS].

Encountering the Georgia Militia, under Maj. Gen. Gustavus Smith & Gen. L. S. Ross' cavalry, the Federals drove them eastward 1.25 miles. Blair's troops intrenched here for the night.

This action was coincident with 4th & 16th A. C. assaults on Johnston's line at Smyrna & at Ruff' s Mill, some four miles N.E. on the old Concord Road.
