July 17, 1864. Schofield's 23d A.C. left its river positions near Isom's ferry on a march designed to gain the N.E. sector of the final approach to Atlanta by Federal forces.

Cox's (3d) div continued to Sandy Springs on this road where a rt. turn headed the column on its three-day march to Decatur, DeKalb Co. To secure wider coverage of the immediate front, Hascall's (2d) div. turned south across Long Island Cr. to Mt. Paran Rd. where it camped at or near the Burdett farm. The 4th A.C. (last of the 7 Federal corps to leave the river) began its march from Crossroads Church to Buckhead the next day, via Power's Fy. Rd.
