Long Description:

WARD'S DIV. ENCAMPED

July 18, 1864. Ward’s 3rd Division, 20th A.C. moved to this position from Pace’s Ferry to occupy the sector on the immediate right of Howard’s 4th Corps which had marched from Power’s Ferry reaching Buckhead at noon.

The other two 20th A.C. Divisions were aligned West on Pace’s Ferry Road. These, together with the three Divisions of the 14th A.C. continued the federal line to the Chattahoochee River.

July 19. Ward remained in camp here while his pioneer corps constructed bridges at Peachtree Creek where his troops crossed the next day to the battlefield of Peachtree Creek along Collier Road.
