July 17, 1864. At this road-fork (near old Providence Church), the 16th A.C. of the Army of the Tenn. (US), enroute from Roswell to Decatur, moved by the west fork towards Nancy's Creek where it camped near old Cross Keys.

The 15th A.C., followed by the 17th continued S.E. on old Shallow Ford Rd. to Nancy's Creek where they camped. Garrard's cav. was posted on the left (east) of the 15th Corps.

The primary purpose of McPherson's march to Decatur was to seize & destroy the Georgia Railroad between that place & Stone Mountain depot, nine miles N.E. of it.
