Atlanta in Fulton County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
When both divisions were deployed west from Williams Mill Rd. (Briarcliff), a half-mile interval was held by pickets only. Not until 6 p.m. was the gap occupied by King’s 14th A.C. brigade, shifted E. from Howell Mill Rd. and posted in this sector N. of the creek -- a belated precaution and perhaps unavailing, had Hood [CS] attacked by Plaster’s Bridge Road (Piedmont Rd.) in the Battle of Peachtree Creek.
Erected 1987 by Georgia Department of Natural Resources. (Marker Number 060-73.)
