Inscription
July 3, 1864. Gen. J. E. Johnston's army (CS) withdrew from Kennesaw Mtn. & occupied a double line of field-works which crossed the R. R. at old Smyrna Camp Ground, facing N. W. Loring's A. C. was on the rt. (N. E. of R. R.); Hardee's, at center; Hood's on left, near Ruff's Mill, Nickajack Cr.
July 4. The 4th A. C. (US), (E. of R. R.), attacked the Confederate right to ascertain strength of the position; it was found impregnable. A similar attack on the left near Ruff's Mill was alike ineffective. Being outflanked, Johnston withdrew to his River Line that night.
