Text:

A small tributary of Peachtree Creek, which rises near Pace´s Ferry Road & drains the valley between Arden, Dover, Howell Mill rds. & Moore´s Mill Road; a landmark of military operations in the Summer of 1864.

July 19, Federal 14th A.C. troops encountered determined opposition by Confederate forces in attempting to cross Peachtree creek.

Dilworth´s 3d brigade, Davis div. [Federal] made the 1st crossing at the month of Green Bone Cr., some 250 yds. S. Supported by a brigade of Baird´s div. Geary´s passage of Peachtree Cr. (at N. Side Dr.) depleted the opposition at Howell´s Mills where the rest of Baird´s div. crossed.
