North Line Dalton´s Defenses


April, 1864. Pending Federal moves on Dalton a strong line of defense works was built across Crow Valley. Beginning at the Signal Station on Rocky Face, W. it crossed the road at this point and ascended the wooded hill E., where artillery was placed. Beyond a creek to a high ridge it turned S. across Ault´s Gap. N. of ridge and a prolongation of it, is Potato Hill (Picket Top), which was also fortified.

May 8-13. Stevenson´s div. (Hood´s A.c.) occupied the line W, On the E. were portions of Hindman´s div., under temporary command of Hardee - his h´dq´rs at Ault´s Mill.
