Text of marker: "BATTLE OF EZRA CHURCH GEN STEWART WOUNDED. July 28, 1864. Gen. A.P. Stewart, with Walthall's and Long's divisions of his A.C.(Confederate) reached the field in time to renew the attack. Walthall, on left, fared no better than Brown in the same area. Stewart, riding forward to this hill, learned of Walthall's failure, but before he could order Loring into action, he was struck by a spent bullet. Walthall succeeded Stewart and withdrew his division (under Quarles) and ordered no further attack by Loring's division. At 10:00 p.m. Hood (Confederate) withdrew the troops to Atlanta. This battle was the 3rd attempt, outside the city, to halt Federal operations against it. 060-146 GEORGIA HISTORIC MARKER 1983"
