July 17, 1864. Palmer's 14th and Hooker's 20th A. C. [US] crossed to the Fulton Co. side of the river on two pontoon bridges. This passage was covered by Wood's 4th A.C. div., which marched down Mt. Paran Rd. from Power's Ferry, 3 mi. N.

To divert attention of Johnston's forces [CS], to crossings below, Stoneman's cav. was sent S. (July 13) to threaten the A. & W. P.R.R. When it returned (July 16), Blair's 17th A.C. began its 29 mi. march from Turner's Fy. to Roswell where it crossed the 17th. This and the passage of the 14th and 20th Corps at Pace's, completed the crossing of the Federal infantry.
