E. on the ridge beyond the valley is the Illinois memorial to Col. Dan McCook's brigade, Davis' div., 14th A.C. [US]. It stands at an angle in breastworks of Cheatham's div., Hardee's A.C. [CS].

McCook's was 1 of 5 brigades designated to attempt a break-through, June 27. Its 5 regiments formed on the then wooded slope this side of the stream — four in column, of regimental fronts, one advanced as skirmishers.

The assault was toward the angle; down the hill — across the stream — up the cleared slope beyond, to the objective — the only brigade of 5 to reach it, where a close-up line was held until Cheatham withdrew July 3.
