After leaving Tunnel Hill, I stopped and got some lunch. While I was eating, I pored over a map that I had gotten and found what I was looking for - Crow Valley Road. It was off this road that on May 4, 1864, twelve members of the 58th and 60th North Carolina Troops were executed for desertion. I do not know where these men are buried (yet).

It was in this area that the battle of Rocky Face Ridge was fought between May 7 and 13, 1864. I found this historical marker on the edge of some woods. The actual fighting would have taken place to the right of this marker. For some reason, I did not take a photograph of that area, which is odd for me. I took over three hundred photographs in three days.

Tomorrow - on to Chickamauga
