June 22, 1864

The 14th Kentucky (2d Division, 23d A.C.,) together with the 123d N. Y. (1st Division, 20th A.C.,) were posted as skirmishers East of the Kolb farmstead.

The stubborn resistance by the 14th Ky., and the 123d N.Y., disrupted the concerted assault by Stevenson´s Division, upon the main line astride the Powder Springs Road West of this point. This delaying action, together with Federal artillery fire halted Stevenson´s attempt to win his objective.
