In his “Report of General Joseph E. Johnston, C. S. Army, commanding Army of Tennessee, of operations December 27, 1863-July 17, 1864.” the Confederate commander reported the following:
On the 7th [June] the right, covered by Noonday Creek, was extended across the Acworth and Marietta road. The enemy approached under cover of successive lines of intrenchments. There was brisk and incessant skirmishing until the 18th.  On the 19th a new line was taken by the army, Hood’s corps with its right on the Marietta and Canton road, Loring’s on the Kenesaw Mountain, and Hardee’s with its left extending across the Lost Mountain and Marietta road. 
On the 20th of June Wheeler, with 1,100 men, routed Garrard’s division of Federal cavalry on our right.
