July 20, 1864. To this high ground, 500 yds. in front of Geary's div. (20th A.C.) [US] on Collier Rd., the 33d N.J. regt., Jones' brigade, was sent to establish & support a battery position.

The regiment had scarcely reached this hill when, in a surprise attack, it was assailed by Scott's brigade (Loring's div.) [CS] moving toward the main line of the 20th corps.

The 33d N.J., despite its endeavors to hold the hill, was driven back to the road — its State flag (a blue banner) being seized by John Abernathy of the 27th Alabama regiment. Scott's assault began the critical struggle that centered at Collier's Mill.
