Text of marker: "BENTON'S & COLTART'S BRIGADES. July 22, 1864. When Brown's (formerly Hindman's) div., Cheatham's A.C. [Confed.] attacked the Fed. line E. of here, Benton's Mississippi & Coltart's Alabama brigades struck Harrow's div. of the 15th A.C. [Union], dislodging Williams' & Oliver's brigades. Simultaneously, Manigault seized Martin's & Lightburn's line astride the Ga. R.R. northward - a combined action that displaced four Federal brigades on a half-mile front which they later recovered by reinforced counter-assaults. Col. Samuel Benton, wounded in the battle, was carried to the rear and later removed to a hospital at Griffin, Ga., where he died. 060-103 GEORGIA HISTORIC MARKER 1984"
