July 22, 1864. Baker`s Alabama brigade (Col. J.H. Higley comdg.), Clayton`s div., Cheatham`s A.C., [CSA} was diverted N.E. in Clayton`s attack on the 15th A.C. eastward, thus forming the extreme left of the line extending S. to Glenwood Ave. Higley`s troops faced the right sector of the 15th A.C. held by 2 brigades of Woods` div. on the S. slope of Copenhill. A gap of 250 yds. in the swampy area of Clear Creek valley, separated Woods from the right of Morgan Smith`s div. where the DeGress battery was posted.

Woods' flank attack on Manigault's line at the Troup Hurt house not only retrieved the battery, but forced Baker`s brigade to withdraw.
