Text of marker: "BATTLE OF UTOY CREEK. Federal siege operations not only involved the encircling line of Atlanta's defenses, but threatened the two railroads S. W. of the city. Pursuant thereto, Federal forces, after the Battle of Ezra Church, were shifted S., only to be confronted by a line of Confederate works W. of and parallel to the railroads. Blocking the southward drift, Bate's division of Hardee's A.C. [Confederate] was posted on a ridge W. of the main line and S. of Sandtown Rd. August 6, 1864: Cox's division, 23d A.C. [USA], moving from N. of the road vainly attempted to dislodge Bate, who withdrew only when outflanked by Hascall's div. Cascade Avenue was the old Sandtown Rd. 060-159 GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1958"
