Long Description:
On June 2, 1864 pressure on right of Johnston's line [CS] by 23rd A. C. [US]
forced the rt. of Hardee's Corps [CS] E. of the Dallas - Acworth
road, enabling Schofield [US] to gain a position near the Foster
House. Failing to get promised support from the 20th A. C. [US], Schofield was unable to pursue his advantage and night found Hardee's

This movement was in line with the Fed. drive to outflank Johnston
