Inscription. The 14th Kentucky (2d Division, 23d A.C.,) together with the 123d N. Y. (1st Division, 20th A.C.,) [US] were posted as skirmishers East of the Kolb farmstead.

The stubborn resistance by the 14th Ky., and the 123d N.Y., disrupted the concerted assault by Stevensonís Division, [CS] upon the main line [US] astride the Powder Springs Road West of this point.

This delaying action, together with Federal artillery fire halted Stevensonís attempt to win his objective.

Additional comments.
1. Marker History
Some time between late 2007 and early 2009, this marker (#033-12) was removed but the supporting post remained. In spring 2009, the marker was repaired and re-installed. However, the two Georgia state markers at this location were switched in their location when this marker was re-installed. This marker (#033-12) was previously on the left (south) side of the National Park Service interpretive sign, but it is now on the right (north) side.
