1. Hardee's Attack Marker
Inscription. July 20, 1864. At 3:30 P.M., 3 divisions of Hardee’s A.C., [CS] Bate’s, Walker’s, & Maney’s, moved to the attack of Newton’s 4th A.C. div. [US] posted on the ridge 200 yards north of Collier Road.

Bate, on the right of the corps, was just west of Clear Creek; Walker at center, astride Peachtree Rd., & Maney (formerly Cheatham), on Walker’s left. Peachtree was a winding country rd. bordered by heavily wooded tracts—largely of Collier ownership in the battlefield area. The house of Andrew J. Collier (of Collier’s Mill) stood at S. W. cor. Peachtree & Collier roads. While leading his brigade, Gen. C. H. Stevens, of Walker’s div. was killed near the Collier House.
