July 19, 1864. The 1st crossing of Peachtree Cr by federal 14th A.C. troops, was at the junction of Green Bone Cr., 3/4 mi. N. of here. Two regts. of Dilworth´s brigades (Davis´ div.), crossing on a log, were at once assailed by skirmishers of Reynolds´ & Adams´ brigades of Stewart´s A.C. which guarded the S. bank from Howell´s Mills to Nancy´s Cr. With the entire brigade across, Dilworth moved S. to this hill where a sharp, if brief, engagement resulted in heavy loses on both sides.

July 20. Quarles´ brigade relieved Reynolds, who moved E. on Howell Mill Rd. where he participated in the Battle of Peachtree Creek.
