Inscription:
Hardee at Wm. Cobb's House


July 22, 1864. Hardee´s A.C., (CSA) consisting of 4 divisions, enroute N. to the rear of Federal forces in E. Atlanta, halted here at dawn to procure guides for a wilderness march ahead. Hardee, his staff & general officers rode to Wm. Cobb´s house (still standing) a short distance W.W. where Wm. Cobb (of Cobb´s Mill) & the miller, Case Turner, agreed to serve as guides. Cobb rode with Cleburne & Maney (Cheatham´s old div.); Turner, with Walker & Bate.

Irving Buck, in "Cleburne & His Command," cites the halt at Cobb´s Mill, but the identity & services of the guides rest solely on Case Turner´s statements to J.W. McWilliams.
