During demonstrations on Rocky Face & in Crow Valley, by 4th & 23d Army Corps troops, the northern line of Dalton's defense works crossed the road here. Stevenson's div. (Hood's Army Corps) held this sector, his left at Cheatham's line, at Signal Station on Rocky Face; his right, at Ault's Creek, E. May 9, 1864. Stevenson's men repulsed the 23d Army Corps in Crow Valley, & the desperate attempt by Harker's & Wagner's brigades, Newton's div., 4th Army Corps, to break the left of Stevenson's at & near the top of Rocky Face, where Pettus' & Brown's brigades were posted behind stone breastworks that are still there.
