May 23d, 1864, Lt. Gen. Leonidas Polk's Corps, [CS] marching S. from Allatoona, camped at night in this vicinity enroute to Dallas in Paulding County via Lost Mountain.

This was the left wing of Johnston's army [CS] which had crossed the Etowah River May 20, & remained at Allatoona until the 23d.

Learning that Sherman's forces [US] had left Cassville & Kingston for Dallas, Johnston moved S. on parallel roads to checkmate the Federal flanking march — Hood's & Hardee's Corps [CS] marched by the New Hope road four miles west.
