The stalemate on the Kennesaw Mtn. front was broken when the rt. wing of Sherman's forces was extended S. on the old Sandtown road to this point.

This eventuated July 1, 1864, when Brig. Gen. Milo S. Hascall's (2d) div., 23d A. C. [US] moved to this strategic position which threatened Johnston's lines [CS] of communication & retreat — the State R. R. & highways E. of here & S. of Kennesaw Mountain.
