1. Bate's Div. at Terry's Mill Pond Marker
Inscription. July 22, 1864. Bate’s, together with Walker’s div., Hardee’s A.C., (CS) having moved up Sugar Cr. valley W. of Terry’s mill pond, were deployed in this area for a surprise attack on Federal troops posted N.W. of here on Flat Shoals Rd.

While Bate’s div. was being hastily shifted E. of the creek, Lewis’ “Orphan Brigade” and part of Tyler’s were subjected to random artillery fire from Federal batteries northward, when crossing the upper end of the mill pond and its swampy margin. Bate aligned his forces E. of the creek and moved N. in the wooded area to be confronted by the Federal 16th A.C.
