Federal siege operations not only involved the encircling line of Atlanta's defenses, but threatened the 2 railroads S.W. of the city. Pursuant thereto, Federal forces after the Battle of Ezra Church were shifted S., only to be confronted by a line of Confederate works west of and parallel to the railroads.

Blocking this southward drift, Bate's division of Hardees A.C. (CSA) was posted on a ridge West of the main line and South of the Sandtown Rd. Aug 6, 1864: Cox's div., 23d A.C. (USA), moving from N. of the road vainly attempted to dislodge Bate, who withdrew only when outflanked by Hascall's div. Cascade Avenue was the old Sandtown Road.
