DISPUTED PASSAGE

July 19, 1864. The 1st crossing of Peachtree Cr., by federal 14th A.C. troops, was at the junction of Green Bone Cr., 3/4 mi. N. of here. Two regts. of Dilworth’s brigades (Davis’ div.), crossing on a log, were at once assailed by skirmishers of Reynolds’ & Adams’ brigades of Stewart’s A.C. which guarded the S. bank from Howell’s Mills to Nancy’s Cr. With the entire brigade across, Dilworth moved S. to this hill where a sharp, if brief, engagement resulted in heavy loses on both sides.

July 20. Quarles’ brigade relieved Reynolds, who moved E. to Howell Mill Rd. where he participated in the Battle of Peachtree Creek.
