Long Description:
CONFEDERATE LINE
5 P.M. MAY 19, 1864
The three corps of Gen. Joseph E. Johnston's Army [CSA] were withdrawn from N. & W. of Cassville to this ridge, E. & S. of the town.
Hardee was posted astride the R.R. near Cass Station on the S.
Polk centered here & Hood's line skirted the cemetery N.
This shift from an aggressive to a defensive position resulted in a Council of War at Polk's h'dq'rs. where it was claimed the line was untenable, whereupon Johnson ordered a retreat to to the Etowah River that night.
