Long Description:
US 41 at Two Run Creek, just north of Cassville in Bartow County
This marker reads as follows:

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

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

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