July 20, 1864. Gen. John Newton’s div., Howard’s 4th A.C., marching S. from Buckhead, relieved T. J. Wood’s div. this side of Peachtree Cr., & moved to this ridge where two brigades were deployed; Kimball’s W. of, & Blake’s E. of, Peachtree Rd. - Bradley’s in reserve at the rear.
3 of Hardee’s divs., [Confederate], Bate’s, Walker’s, & Maney’s, moved from their intrenched line (.8 mi. S.) at 3:30 P.M. Walker & Maney struck the fronts of Kimball & Blake; Bate, in Clear Creek Valley, outflanked Blake only to face Bradley. Kimball narrowly averted a line-break on his right by changing front & the timely support of Ward’s 20th A.C. division.
