1. Manigault's Brigade Marker
Inscription. July 22, 1864. Manigaultís brigade, Brownís div., Cheathamís A.C. (CS) attacked this sector where Martinís & Lightburnís brigades were posted astride the Decatur rd. & the Ga. R.R. cut. Manigaultís troops broke the Federal line at the cut, thereby forcing the withdrawal of Lightburn & Martin from this sector of the entrenched line of Loganís 15th corps.

A counter assault by Lightburn & Martin, together with Mannyís 16th A.C. brigade (brought up from the battlefield area S. of the R.R.), recovered the Federal line & the DeGress battery which Manigaultís men had seized but had not be able to remove.
