Inscription.  July 19, 1864. Morgan’s brigade (Davis’ div.), 14th A.C., was posted on the rt. of Dilworth’s brigade to support his crossing of Peachtree Creek at junction with Green Bone Cr. Morgan faced destructive fire from Confederate forces on the high bluff S. of Moore’s Mill & the creek. That night, the 10th Mich. pickets occupied the mill & destroyed the flume ~ thereby emptying the millpond.

July 20. Mitchell’s brigade, W. of Nancy’s Cr., having outflanked the Confederates on the bluff, forced its evacuation, which enabled Morgan’s brigade to cross the creek at the ford and join the rest of Davis’ division.
