Gen. George Maney, comdg. Cheatham's old div. of Hardee's A.C. (CS) at Peachtree Cr., July 20, led the div. July 22 in the Battle of Atlanta. Both Cleburne's & Maney's divs. advanced N.W. on Flat Shoals Road to attack the Federal 17th A.C. aligned along its course - its left, terminating in a dangling fish-hook bent eastward.

Maney's four brigades were deployed in this area. Moving N., they assaulted the Federal front in concert with Cleburne's flank & rear attack with three brigades - an action that swept an entire Federal division from its intrenched line, northward to Leggett's Hill.
