Long Description:


July 20, 1864. Brig. Gen. Walter Q. Gresham's 4th div., leading the advance of the 17th A.C. [Union] against Wheeler's Cav. [Confed.] & forcing it W. to Leggett's Hill, halted here at sundown.

Leggett's 3d div. was brought forward & would have moved against Wheeler's position one-half mile W. but for the failure to get orders.

While making a personal reconnaissance of Wheeler's position in his front, Gresham received a wound that ended his military service. In 1893-1895 he was Secretary of State in President Grover Cleveland's Cabinet.
