Long Description:

HARDEE'S CORPS AT KINGSTON

May 18, 1864. Lt. Gen. Wm. J. Hardee's A. C. marched from Adairsville
on the road parallel to the State R.R. -- turning E. on
this rd. to join Polk's & Hood's corps [CSA] at Cassville,
which had moved on the direct Adairsville - Cassville road.
Sherman's [USA] error in assuming that all of Johnston's army [CSA]
had marched from Adairsville, as Hardee had, to Kingston,
caused him to order his forces concentrated here --
discovering later that the Confederate Army was 5.5 miles
E. at Cassville & not at the river S. of Kingston.
