Text of marker: "DIVERTED ATTACK. Aug. 31, 1864. The three divs. of Hardee's A. C. [CS] Lowrey's, Brown's & Maney's (under Gen. Cleburne), moved W. from Jonesboro to attack the flank of the intrenched Federal 15th A. C. 400 yds. N. This called for a wheel to the right (or N.) & was timed in concert with an assault by S. D. Lee's A. C. on the Federals facing Jonesboro. Three of Lowrey's brigades, diverted by finding Kilpatrick's dismounted cav. [US] this side Flint River, not only drove it across but pursued it to the other side. Maney swung to the right, closing the gap made by Lowrey's deflection, but Brown's div. had been repulsed before Maney could align on its left. 031-14 GEOGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1956"
