Long Description:

French's Division Hood's Left Flank

July 20. 1864. The right of Gen. S. F. French´s division of Stewart´s A. C. [Confederate] rested on DeFoor´s Road - the left, being at Casey´s Hill 1.5 miles west, during the Battle of Peachtree Creek.

While Walthall´s and Loring´s division´s attacked the Federal 20th A. C. at Collier Rd., French´s 3 brigades were on Waithall´s left, & by demonstrations in force engaged the attention of the 14th A. C. thereby preventing its unlimited participation in the battle.

The high knoll west of here (at Davis´ Circle) topped by a formidable redoubt, was a part of French´s entrenched line.
