Inscription. A point in the intrenched line held by Gen. Carter L. Stevensonís div. of the Cheathamís (formerly Hoodís) A.C. [CS] -- a sector of Atlantaís outer defense line. July 18-22, 1864.

Stevensonís troops were on the right of Bateís div. (Hardeeís A.C.), [CS] which rested on Clear Creek at Walkerís (or Jonesís) Mill near N. end of Piedmont Park. Bateís troops led off in the attack on Federal forces northward, in the Battle of Peachtree Creek, July 20, a battle confined to the west side of Clear Creek.

Cheatham held this sector as a barrier to Federal forces N. & E. until ordered to withdraw to defenses nearer the city, July 22.
