Hardee´s intrenched line [CS] crossed the road at this point -- position held June 17-19, 1864 by Cleburne´s Division [CS] after withdrawal of Johnston´s left flank from Gilgal Church.

A sharp artillery duel & severe rain marked the 48 hours here -- the opposition being the 20th & 23d Corps batteries [US] at Darby´s West of the creek.

Brig. Gen. Lucius E. Polk (nephew of Lt. Gen. Polk) [CS] was severely wounded & the regiments of his brigade were assigned to other commands in Cleburne´s Div.
