May 16, 1864. Maj. Gen. S.G. French, in person, reached Rome from Ala., enroute with his div. (Polk's A.C.), to join Johnston's army [CS] at Cassville. Sears' brigade was sent to Kingston that night.

May 17. Ector's, resisting Davis' approach on the Armuchee rd., was sent across the Oostanaula with Ross' & J. T. Morgan's cav. Cockrell's brigade arrived at dark & went on to Kingston. Ector was withdrawn at midnight — leaving a small force to defend the city.

French made a token defense, only, as he was under strict orders to reinforce Johnston's army, confronted by five corps of the Federal army under Sherman, at Cassville.
