July 22, 1864. When Brown's (formerly Hindman's) div., Cheatham's A.C. (CS) attacked the Fed. Line E. of here, Benton's Mississippi & Coltart's Alabama brigades struck Harrow's div. of the 15th A.C. (US), dislodging Williams' & Oliver's brigades. Simultaneously, Manigault seized Martin's & Lightburn's line astride the Ga. R.R. northward - a combined action that displaced four Federal brigades on a half-mile front which they later recovered by reinforced counter-assaults.

Col. Samuel Benton, wounded in the battle, was carried to the rear and later removed to a hospital at Griffin, Ga., where he died.
