Failing to dislodge Federal forces N. of Atlanta at Peachtree Cr., July 20, Gen. Hood sent Hardee's A.C. on a 15-mile night march S.E. to the rear of Federal troops in East Atlanta.

Hardee began the march after dark, July 21, via Capitol Ave. & McDonough Rd. At this point the road turned toward the South River; there was no Moreland Ave. (County Line Rd.) at the time.

Riding with Hardee's A.C. was Wheeler's Cav., enroute to Decatur to seize the Federal wagon trains parked near the public square. This strategic move in Hood's defense of the city resulted in the major conflict of the Atlanta Campaign - the battle of July 22, 1864.
