In this locality, the highest in Memphis, a section (2 guns) of Forrest's artillery was emplaced under Lt. Sale, supporting his raid on Memphis. Fire was directed against Federals in buildings of the State Female College about 700 yards NE, until it was learned that women and children were also in the buildings.
