August 30, 1864. On receipt of Hardee's report from Rough and Ready of Federal threats to the M. & W. R. R., at Jonesboro, Hood directed Hardee & S. D. Lee [CS] to come to headquarters. The locomotive N. C. MONROE was sent for them at sunset: Hardee at Rough and Ready, Lee at East Point. On reaching Atlanta, Hardee was directed by Hood to march two corps — his own, under Cleburne, from near Rough and Ready, & Lee's from East Point — to Jonesboro.

This was an endeavor to checkmate the Federal threat to Atlanta's last R. R. Hardee arrived by rail at Jonesboro before dawn the 31st, in advance of his marching soldiery.
