    this marker is on the site of general stephen d. lee's withdrawl to atlanta. general john b. hood, headquartered in atlanta, ordered lee's withdrawl not knowing the both lee and general william j. hardee were being attacked by union forces. general lee withdrew his troops at 2:00 am the morning of september 1 st leaving hardee to defend jonesboro. hardee was greatly out numbered by howard's union forces and was forced to retreat from jonesboro later that day. the union victory at jonesboro led to the union occupation of atlanta.
