Long Description:
WARD'S DIV. CROSSED PEACHTREE CREEK

July 20, 1864. Ward's 20th A.C. div. crossed a short distance downstream, leaving the artillery on this side, because of difficult terrain south of the creek.

Moving S.W., it occupied the section between Geary's div. (W. of Collier's Mill), & the right of Newton's 4th A.C. div. astride Peachtree Rd. at the hill-top this side of Collier Road.
This completed the Fed. alignment between Clear Creek (on the E.) & Howell Mill Rd. (on the W.), against which Hood launched his attack at 3:30 P.M., -- the first of his sorties from Atlanta -- the Battle of Peachtree Creek.
