Long Description:

Hardee's Night March

Failure to dislodge Federal forces N.of Atlanta
at Peachtree Cr., July 20, Gen. Hood sent
Haardee's A.C. on a 15 mile night march S.E.
to the rear of Federal troops in East Atlanta.

Hardee began the march after dark, July 21, via
Capitol Ave. and McDonough Rd.At this point the
the road turned toward the South River; there
was no Moreland Ave (County Line Rd.)at that time.

Riding with Hardee's A.C. was Wheeler's Cav.
enroute to Decatur to seize the Federal wagon trains
parked near the public square. This strategic move
in Hood's defense of the city resulted in the major
conflict of the Atlanta Campaign - the battle of
July 22, 1864.
