S. on this rd., .8 mi. stands the ante-bellum residence of Alexander Eaton (1809-1905). July 3, 4, 5, 1864, the intrenched lines of Gen. John B. Hood's A.C. [CS] extended along the rd. from the Gann Cem. to site of Cooper's Lake. The Eaton house, being but 1 mi. E. of these lines, was used by Gen. Hood as headquarters.

From Eaton's house, Hood directed his troops in the Battle of Ruff's Mill, July 4 — the A.C. being left flank of Johnston's Smyrna-Ruff's Mill line [CS], after his retreat from Kennesaw. Rufus Eaton, age 6, son of Alex. said he saw Johnston at the house during the battle.
