June 27, 1864. While 8 Federal brigades at Kennesaw Mtn. & at Cheatham Hill, made futile attempts to break Johnston's line [CS], Schofield's 23d A. C. [US] moved S. from Powder Springs road. This flanking move was opposed by Hood's A. C., (extended below Kolb's Farm), & Ross' cav. [CS] on this the old Sandtown road.

Schofield reached & fortified these crossroads — a strategic position that posed more of a threat to Johnston's Kennesaw line than the assaults by 8 brigades further N. — a fact noted in Sherman's dispatch to Thomas as "the only advantage of the day". (38 - IV - 610).
