Aug. 31, 1864. When Gen. Hood in Atlanta heard that Federal forces had seized the railroad at Rough and Ready & suspecting an attack from that quarter, he ordered Gen. S. D. Lee's A. C. [CS] to move back toward Atlanta to support Stewart's A. C. there. This order was issued before Hood learned that Hardee's & Lee's troops had been engaged with Howard's forces [US] all that afternoon at Jonesboro.

Sept. 1. Lee began his march at 2 A. M. on this road which joins the McDonough-Atlanta road six miles N. E. This left Hardee's corps — singly & alone — to face six Federal corps in the final battle of the Atlanta Campaign.
