Long Description:

WALKER & BATE AT SUGAR CREEK.

July 22, 1864. Walker's & Bate's divisions of Hardee's A.C. [CSA] enroute to the rear of the 17th A.C. [USA] in East Atlanta, detoured here along the West bank of the creek to keep contact with Cleburne's & Maney's divisions [CSA] moving upon the Federal left flank via Flat Shoals Road, 3/4 mile West.

This detour was in sequence with the misdirected march of Cleburne's & Maney's troops and it entailed a circuitous by-passing of Terry's mill pond, northward of which, Walker's & Bate's divisions found Federal forces squarely across their front. General Walker was killed at the upper end of the pond while bringing his troops forward to the battlefield.
