Inscription
On Dec. 5, 1865, Maj. Gen. Jeff. C. Davis` 14th Corps of Gen. Sherman`s army (USA), which had left Atlanta on Nov. 15th on its destructive March to the Sea, camped at Jacksonboro. Carlin`s and Morgan`s divisions had marched via Lumpkin`s Station (Munnerlyn) without trouble, but Baird`s division, marching on the extreme left, arrived via Sardis after supporting Kilpatrick`s cavalry division (USA) in its engagement with Wheeler`s cavalry corps (CSA) at Waynesboro on the 4th.

On the 6th, after rebuilding the bridge over Beaver Dam Creek, the 14th Corps, followed by the cavalry, moved south on the Old Savannah Road (Ga 24) toward Ebenezer.
