Maney's Div. in the Battle of Atlanta Marker  


Gen. George Maney, comdg. Cheatham´s old div. of Hardee´s A.C. [CSA] at Peachtree Cr., July 20, led the div. July 22 in the Battle of Atlanta. Both Cleburne´s & Maney´s divs. advanced N.W. on Flat Shoals Road to attack the Federal 17th A.C. aligned along its course -- its left, terminating in a dangling fish-hook bent eastward.

Maney´s four brigades were deployed in this area. Moving N., they assaulted the Federal front in concert with Cleburne´s flank & rear attack with three brigades -- an action that swept an entire Federal division from its intrenched line, northward to Leggett´s Hill.
