Text of marker: "CONFEDERATE LINE 5 P.M. MAY 19, 1864. The three corps of Gen. Joseph E. Johnston's Army [CSA] were withdrawn from N. & W. of Cassville to this ridge, E. & S. of the town. Hardee was posted astride the R.R. near Cass Station on the S.; Polk centered here & Hood's line skirted the cemetery N. This shift from an aggressive to a defensive position resulted in a Council of War at Polk's h'dq'rs. where it was claimed the line was untenable, whereupon Johnson ordered a retreat to the Etowah River that night. 008-23 GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1953"
