Text:

July 19, 1864. Morgan´s brigade (Davis division), 14th A.C. was posted on the right of Dilworth´s brigade to support his crossing of Peachtree Creek at junction with Green Bone Cr. Morgan faced destructive fire from Confederate forces on the high bluff S. of Moore´s Mill & the creek. That night, the 10th Mich. Pickets occupied the mill and destroyed the flume ~ thereby emptying the millpond.

July 20, Mitchell´s brigade, W. of Nancy´s Cr., having outflanked the Confederates on the bluff, forced its evacuation, which enabled Morgan´s brigade to cross the creek at the ford and join the rest of Davis´ Division.
