May 16, 1864. Butterfield's (3rd) div. 20th A.C., (US) instead of crossing at McClure's Ferry 2mi. downstream, sought to gain time by moving to Field's — reaching here 11 P.M. Not until noon of the 17th was it across.

Schofield, prevented from crossing his corps (23d) (US) at McClure's, moved the 1st & 2d divs. to Field's, arriving here early the 17th — as did Cox's (3d) div., which had marched via Tilton & Holley.

With Butterfield at Field's, Schofield's A.C. (the left wing of Sherman's advance from Resaca), was held up 24hrs. because of the erratic moves of the 20th Corps.
