Inscription
April, 1864. Pending Federal moves on Dalton a strong line of defense works was built across Crow Valley. Beginning at the Signal Station on Rocky Face, W., it crossed the road at this point & ascended the wooded hill E. where artillery was placed. Beyond a creek to a high ridge it turned S. across Ault's Gap. N. of ridge and prolongation of it, is Potato Hill (Picket Top), which wasalso fortified. May 8-13, Stevenson's div. (Hood's A.C.) occupied the line W. On the E. were portions of Hindman's div., under temporary command of Hardee — his h'dq'rs at Ault's Mill.
