Crow Valley

155-021

 

Feb. 25, 1864. Federal forces moved S. on this rd. in an attempt to outflank the Confederate defenders at Mill Creek Capt, which was being threatened by 2 Fed. divs. from the W. These movements were to test the strength of Johnston’s army at Dalton, said to have been depleted by a shift of Hardee’s A.C. to Mississippi. All Federal attacks failed.

Troops in this area were Cruft’s div., 4th A.C., Baird’s div., 14th A.C., & Long’s cavaltry.

5 landmarks of the Feb. operations in Crow Valley, still survive: the Crow house, opp. this marker; the Davis house 500 ft. n., the Burke house, spring & log barn, 2 mi. N.E.
