June 5, 1864. When Johnston's army [CS] withdrew from Smyrna to the river, Howard's 4th A. C., and Baird's div. (14th A.C.), [US] via highway and R. R. occupied Vining's. Baird's troops kept on down the R. R. until halted by Johnston's River Line.

4th A.C. troops pursued the Confederate wagon trains, escorted by Wheeler's Cav., toward the pontoon bridge at Pace's Ferry where they crossed the river. Morgan's 7th Ind. Battery [US] shelled the column from Vining's Hill.

Also, from this eminence, Generals Sherman, Thomas and Baird, had their first view of Atlanta, across the Chattahoochee, 9.5 mi. S. E.
