Message Detail:
Dave,

While I didn't refer to the site as being either US or CS, the site itself is located to the N/NW of where the Confederate entrenchment line was established.

Since Johnston's army had entrenchments waiting for them to fall back on, surrounding the base of Big Kennesaw and Little Kennesaw, they would have passed over the area, but would not have established any permanent communication line in that area.

To my knowledge, the only Confederate signals sent from the north of Big Kennesaw were sent from the Brushy Mountain line, which is located just over a mile NE of Big Kennesaw. (Just over present day U.S. 41) These signals detailed the strength of the Union advance to the CS station on top of Kennesaw located slightly higher up than the flanking Alabama battery. That station was within 100 yards of where the US station was eventually located.

Chip
