Attack by Lee's Corps
Aug. 31. A concerted attack on the Fed. 15th A. C. between the town & Flint River westward, was made by Hardee's & S. D. Lee's corps [CS], the former advancing from below the town - the latter, in this sector, above it.
Lee's three divisions, Anderson's, Clayton's, & Stevenson's, moved directly on the intrenched front of the Federal forces at the river, but lacking adequate support on their left, Lee's troops were forced to abandon the field.
