Brig. Gen. Milo Hascall's (2d) div., 23d A. C., having crossed the Chattahoochee River at Isom's Ferry (mouth of Soap Cr.), July 8, 1864, reached this point, evening July 17. This date marked the initial Federal moves upon Atlanta.

Hascall's march was by routes now known as Mt. Vernon Rd. & Long Island Dr. — the Thomas Burdett farm being one of the landmarks cited in records as Hascall's camping place.

Hascall's position here was by way of occupying the gap between the 4th A. C. at Crossroads Ch & Cox's div. on Nancy's Cr. near Old Cross Keys. July 18, Hascall moved N. E. to join Cox; the 4th A.C., S. E. on Power's Fy. Rd. to Buckhead.
