Photo of Casey's Hill Cemetery
This sign marks the area known as Casey's Hill. It is located on a small road behind the larger (better maintained) Crestlawn Cemetery.

This marker reads:

A notable eminence between Peachtree & Proctor's creeks near the Chattahoochee River & named for John A. Casey (1820 - 1907) who lived on this hill near the old Montgomery Church. Prior to & during the 1860's, the road from Atlanta crossed this hill & via Montgomery's Ferry, ran to Marietta in Cobb County.
Confederate forces crossed the river near the R.R. bridge, July 9-10, 1864, & camped on the left bank until the 18th when most of them shifted toward Atlanta on the old Marietta Rd. Enroute, they learned that Gen. Johnson [CSA] had been relieved of the command & Gen. Hood had been appointed his successor.
