The Federals, having lifted siege operations N. & W. of Atlanta Aug. 25, moved on the A. & W.P. R.R. below East Point & by the 29th began its destruction. In an effort to protect the M. & W. (Central of Ga.) R.R., Hardee's A.C. [CS] hastily built & occupied, Aug 30, a line extending from East Point to Morrow's & Thames mills.

Here the line ran E. to the R.R. near Rough & Ready where Hardee's command post was alerted to observe Federal movements on Jonesboro.

This extended line, occupied but a day, was abandoned that night by Hardee's three divisions — Maney's, Cleburne's & Brown's — & with S.D. Lee's A.C. from Atlanta, they marched to Jonesboro.
