REYNOLD’S BRIGADE

Federal 14th A.C. advancing from Pace’s Fy. (largely on Howell Mill Rd.) were stubbornly resisted by Wheeler’s vastly outnumbered cavalry. Reynold’s Arkansans, Walthall’s div. Stewart’s A.C., were posted N. of the creek, July 14, to support Wheeler’s operations & to destroy the bridge after his inevitable withdrawal.

July 18, 1864. All Confederate forces moved S. of the cr.; Reynold’s troops fired the bridge & from the high ground, covered the approaches with musketry & artillery fire. Johnson’s 14th A.C. div. [Union], failing to force a crossing, was halted for the night.
