July 28, 1864

From this point extending three-fourths mile eastward the Confederate troops of Brig. Gen. John C. Brown's & Maj. Gen. Henry D. Clayton's Divisions (seven brigades) of Lieut. Gen. Stephen D. Lee's Corps, formed in line of battle.

From this line they moved northeastward, driving the Federal skirmishers from the ridge just north of the Old Lick Skillet Rd. (Gordon Rd.), and pressed the assault upon the Federal 15th. Corps, posted three-fourths mile northeast of this point.

Failing to dislodge the Federals, another assault was made by Maj. Gen. E.C. Walthall's Division (three brigades), of Lieut. Gen. Alex P. Stewart's Corps.

Night ended the battle and the Confederates withdrew to the city fortifications. This was Gen. John B. Hood's third attempt to halt Gen. Sherman's drive upon Atlanta.
