The Federal 23d A.C., Army of the Ohio, reached this vicinity via Old Shallow Ford Road (Clairmont) and North Decatur Road, evening of July 19, 1864. This was north east the sector of Sherman's approach to Atlanta. Cox's (3d) division bivouacked east of Pea Vine Creek on the Paden plantation, now part of Emory University campus. General Cox's headquarters were at Judge Paden's house.

Hascall's (2d) division camped along Pea Vine Creek south of this point. McPherson's Army of the Tennessee occupied Decatur; Thomas's Army of the Cumberland was north of Atlanta, along Peachtree Creek, its right resting on the Chattahoochee River.
