When Johnston's forces [CS] withdrew from Kennesaw Mtn., July 3, 1864, they occupied a double line of field works extending from Smyrna S. W. to Nickajack Creek at Dodgen's Mill, more or less along this, the old Concord Road.

Hood's Corps held the left, (S.W.) sector of the lines which crossed the road at this point.

July 4. Federal forces moved up, investing the entire Confederate position. Dodge's 16th A. C. [US] crossed Nickajack at Ruff's Mill & late P.M., Fuller's brigade (4th div.) moved up this rd., the attack falling upon Stevenson's div. [CS], driving it from the first line of works.
