OíNealís Brigade at the Ravine
Gearyís right (Jonesí brigade) joined the left of Williamsí div. on ridge N. of the ravine.
Being in low ground & beset on each flank by cross-fire, OíNealís left pushed forward to a temporary line-break, while his right swung around to assail Gearyís line flank & rear. By stubborn fighting & OíNealís lack of support, Geary was able to hold his position.
Erected 1955 by Georgia Historical Commission. (Marker Number 060-45.)
