1. Williams' Div. Deployed Marker
Inscription.  July 20, 1864. Williams' div., 20th A. C., having crossed Peachtree Cr. 750 yds. N., deployed his 3 brigades - Robinson's, Knipe's & Ruger's in the order named, on this ridge from this point W. This was part of a general move on Atlanta by Fed. forces – no precautions taken against attack for none was anticipated.

Geary's div. was posted on ridge .5 mi. S. E. at Collier Rd. A deep ravine separated the two; no road where N. Side Dr. is located. When the attack by Stewart`s A. C. struck both Williams & Geary, the later was forced to refuse his right wing down the slope to connect with Robinson`s brigade at this point.
Erected 1955 by Georgia Historical Commission. (Marker Number 060-57.)
