Oct. 3-6, 1864. Lt. Gen. John B. Hood [CS] had h'dq'rs at the Colley house which stood 500 ft. N. of this marker.

Hood, enroute with his army to Tennessee, after the fall of Atlanta, marked time in this vicinity while Stewart's A. C. wrecked the State R. R. between Marietta & the Etowah River — a noted episode being French's [CS] attempt to capture the Federal garrison at Allatoona - Oct. 5.

Oct. 6, Hood's forces resumed march to Dallas, Van Wert, Cedartown, Cave Spring, — to battle and defeat at Nashville.
