Inscription
July 22, 1864. Blair's 17th A.C., McPherson's Army of the Tenn. (US) was aligned S. of Logan's 15th astride the Ga. R.R. Leggett's div. of the 17th held the line from Logan's left, to & including the hill. An extension S.E. on Flat Shoals Rd. to Glenwood was occupied by the other division of the 17th A.C., under Giles Smith.

Smith's div., outflanked by Cleburne's troops, was driven to the S. slope of Leggett's Hill. This was followed by concerted attacks on front, flank & rear by Cleburne's & Maney's div. (Hardee's A.C.), together with Stevenson's (Cheatham's A.C.) (CS) - a battle regarded as the major engagement of the Atlanta Campaign.
