150 Years Ago Today: Along the Dallas – New Hope – Pickett’s Mill line

June 3, 1864
    General Schofield advances to the crossroads at the Allatoona Church, the current intersection of Hwy 92, Dallas – Acworth Hwy, and Cedarcrest Rd.  His lead division moves slowly for fear of Confederate attack and being separated from the main body of the Federal army.  They take the entire day to advance and when they reach the crossroads, they discover the Confederates are gone.  General Sherman’s route to Acworth and the railroad now stands unopposed. 
     General Johnston issues orders to the Confederate army to fall back from the main line and move to the newly prepared lines the stretch from the railroad south of Big Shanty, west to Lost Mountain.
