Sept. 1, 1864. Gen. S. D. Lee's A. C., withdrawn from Jonesboro after the battle Aug. 31, camped in this vicinity enroute northward via the McDonough Rd., to aid Stewart's A. C. [CS] in Atlanta if attacked by Federals at East Point. Learning of Hardee's defeat at Jonesboro the 31st, Hood abandoned Atlanta; Stewart & the militia moved out the McDonough Rd. night of Sept. 1.

Sept. 2. Lee, his march resumed, met Stewart & the militia coming southward — the former to Lovejoy's — the latter to Griffin. To cover this withdrawal, Lee continued his march northward until halted at South River, six miles from Atlanta, countermarching to Lovejoy's Sept. 3.
