Marker Text:

May 19, 1864: Butterfield's (3d) Div. 20th A.C. [USA] moving S.E., from McDow's, left the road here & marched to the Hawkins Price house, enroute to Kingston.

The 1st & 2nd Divs., [USA] on roads W., had the same objective ~ an erratic move by Sherman who assumed that Johnston's Army [CSA] had retreated to Kingston.

Butterfield's march disclosed that Johnston's Army was at Cassville ~ not Kingston. The 23d A.C. (Schofield) [USA] marched on this road from McDow's, reaching Cassville at dark.
