July 18, 1864. Hooker´s Federal 20th Corps, occupied this sector between Howard´s 4th at Buckhead, on the left, & Palmer´s 14th, on the right, at Howell Mill Road.

Williams´ & Geary´s divs. of the 20th, camped in this vicinity that night, while Ward´s div. moved E. to Buckhead where it camped on the right of Howard´s 4th Corps.

July 19. Geary´s div. moved S.W. (on Arden Rd.), intending to cross Peachtree Cr., at Howell´s Mill. Finding the 14th A.C. there, Geary shifted his column so as to cross above (at North Side Drive). Williams followed Geary the next day to the battlefield of Peachtree Creek.
