The wooded knob W. was a fortified outpost, 1.25 miles north of Johnston's intrenched line from Lost to Brushy Mountains, June 5-15, 1864. Pine Mountain was held by Bate's division of Hardee's A. C., 5th Co. Washington Artillery of N. Orleans & Lt. R. T. Beauregard's S. Carolina Battery.

June 14. While observing Federal lines with Generals Johnston and Hardee, General Polk was killed by a shell from a Federal battery — identity of which is not certain.

The outpost was abandoned the next day and withdrawn to the main line.
