When the 4th A.C. reached the Chattahoochee July 5, attempts to cross were found impracticable because of Confederate opposition on the other side. Pending the crossing of the 23d A.C. at Soap Cr., July 8, the 4th A.C. marked time in trenches between Rottenwood Cr. (N), & the R.R. below Vining´s Station (S).

July 9: Newton´s (2d) div. moved to Roswell to support Garrard´s cav. July 10: Stanley´s (1st) & Wood´s (3d) moved N. to Soap Cr. to join the 23d A.C. Stoneman´s cav., returned from a raid below Atlanta, the 14th & 20th Corps crossed at Pace´s Ferry, one-half mi. S.
