On Saturday, May 7th 1864, General Sherman’s Armies began their advance on Dalton in the opening moves of the Atlanta Campaign. Very little in the way of resistance was offered by the Confederates as the Federal Armies advanced toward Rocky Face Ridge. The only notable resistance was from a detachment of Wheeler’s Cavalry at Tunnel Hill. Here, Howard’s IV Corps and Palmer’s XIV Corps were able to easily drive the Confederate Cavalry from the field and back to Mill Creek Gap at Rocky Face Ridge. General Sherman soon established his Headquarters at the Clisby-Austin house along the railroad and only a short distance from the tunnel at Tunnel Hill.
