July 18, 1864. Howard's 4th A.C. left Crossroads Ch 4:30 A.M., Newton's div leading, followed by Stanley's & Wood's. Just below Mt. Paran Rd. Newton's column was assailed by Williams' Kentucky Brigade of Wheeler's cav., which opposed the Federals all the way to Buckhead. The 20th A.C. regiments, the 13th N.J. & 82d O. commanded by Ezra Carman, had moved N.E. on Mt. Paran Rd. from Pace's Fy., to support the 4th A.C.; they assisted in driving the Confederate cavalry as far as Nancy's Creek.

Howard's corps was the left of the Army of the Cumberland's advance to Peachtree Creek.
