July 18, 1864. The marching columns of the Army of the Tenn. (US), having diverged 5.5 mi. N.W., rejoined here when Dodge's 16th A.C. moved E. from Old Cross Keys to Rainey's. Blair's 17th A.C. moved 1.75 mi. S. on old Shallow Ford rd. & camped at Blake's Mill, N. Fork Peachtree Cr.; Dodge's 16th, 1 mi. S. (at Candler Rd.) with headquarters at the Rainey house.
