The original Cheshire Bridge Road, crossing N. Fork Peachtree Cr. at this point, was the route taken by two divisions of Howard's 4th A. C. moving to occupy a gap in the Federal line between Peachtree Rd. and Schofield's 23rd A. C. posted S. of Durand's Mill (Briarcliff Road).

July 19, 1864. Stanley's div. was opposed by Confederate cav. which burned the bridge & progress was delayed until it was rebuilt. Stanley camped S.E. near the county line.

July 20. Wood's div. followed — brought forward from Buckhead by Howard who had returned from Stanley's camp for that purpose.
