July 19, 1864. Covered by the fire of Geary's 12 guns [US] on the ridge N. of the cr., together with the musketry of a heavy skirmish line, the division pioneers hastily built a foot bridge with timbers previously prepared.

Ireland's Brigade quickly filed across under fire and seized the first ridge S. of the cr. Candy's and Jones' followed Ireland's and cast up an entrenched bridgehead for the night.

By dawn of the 20th, two other bridges were thrown across; roads to them were cut for wagon and artillery and Williams' division crossed. These bridges were used after the war - their ancient remains visible as late as 1913.
