Text:

Federal 14th A.C. advancing from Pace´s Fy. (largely on Howell Mill Rd.) were stubbornly resisted by Wheeler´s vastly outnumbered cavalry. Reynold´s Arkansans, Walthall´s div. Stewart´s A.C., were posted N. of the creek, July 14, to support Wheeler´s operations and to destroy the bridge after his inevitable withdrawal.

July 18, 1864. All Confederate forces moved S. of the creek; Reynold´s troops fired the bridge & from the high ground, covered the approaches with musketry & artillery fire. Johnson´s 14th A.C. division [Union], failing to force a crossing, was halted for the night.
