This line of works in Adams Park is one of the few remaining sections of the exterior portion of Atlanta's defenses designed as a barrier to Federal attempts to cut the two railroads that enter the city from the S.W. Built about August 1 it joined the main line city fortifications at W. Fair and Ashby Sts., from where it ran SW to East Point - later prolonged and ran to Thames' Mill in Clayton County. Manned by troops of Hardee's and S. D. Lee's corps, it withstood all attempts to seize it & was abandoned only when the Federals cut the railroads at Fairburn and Jonesboro
