On Nov. 18, 1864, Blair's 17th Corps of the Right Wing of Gen. Sherman's army [US], which had left Atlanta on Nov. 15th on its destructive March to the Sea, crossed the Ocmulgee River at Seven Islands (12 mi. NW of Hillsboro) and marched via Monticello and Blountsville toward Gordon. The more direct roads were already crowded with the troops and trains of the 15th Corps and Kilpatrick's cavalry division.

On the night of the 20th, the 17th Corps camped at Blountsville and along the road to Haddock with its advance guard near Fortville, well abreast of the 15th Corps which had reached Clinton that day.
