July 22, 1864. Walker's & Bate's divs. of Hardee's A.C. (CS) enroute to the rear of the 17th A.C. (US) in E. Atlanta, detoured here along the W. bank of the creek to keep contact with Cleburne's & Maney's divs. (CS) moving upon the Federal left flank via Flat Shoals Rd., ? mile W.

This detour was in sequence with the misdirected march of Cleburne's & Maney's troops & it entailed a circuitous by-passing of Terry's mill pond, northward of which, Walker's & Bate's divs. found Federal forces squarely across their front. Gen. Walker was killed at the upper end of the pond while bringing his troops forward to the battlefield.
