Aug. 31, 1864. The night march of Hardee's A. C. (followed by Anderson's div. of S. D. Lee's) [CS] from East Point & Rough and Ready to Jonesboro, was not without incident. About 3 A. M. the head of Brown's column encountered Federal pickets at the bridge near John Chamber's Mill.

Rather than risk a night battle, the columns detoured on a field road eastward & entered Jonesboro on the Morrow's Station road which parallels the R. R. This caused considerable delay; it was well into the forenoon before Hardee's A. C. & Anderson's div. were in the embattled lines at Jonesboro where the 1st of the two battles was fought that afternoon.
