Long Description:

Rt. of 20th A.C. Line

July 20, 1864. In the Battle of Peachtree Creek the right of the federal 20th A.C. (Ruger´s brigade, Williams´ division) rested on Howell Mill Road in this vicinity. The line was prolonged west to the Chattahoochee River by the 14th A.C., R. W. Johnson´s 1st division [US] connecting with the 20th. Anson McCook´s brigade (Johnson´s division) was involved in the Confederate attack by the left of Reynolds´ brigade of Walthall´s division which struck Ruger´s front.

Otherwise, 14th A.C. troops were preoccupied with a threatened attack by two brigades of French´s division [Confederate] which supported Walthall´s left flank west of the Hiram Embry house.
