Text of marker: "BROWN'S & CLAYTON'S DIVS. July 22, 1864: 3:30 P.M. Gen. Hood [Confed.] launched an attack from the east line of the city fortifications, on the 15th A.C. astride the Ga. R.R. (at DeGress Ave.) - a mass assault by two divs. of Cheatham's A.C.: Brown's & Clayton's. Brown's brigades were: Manigault's, Sharp's, Coltart's & Benton's; Clayton's brigades were: Stovall's, Baker's, Gibson's & Holtzclaw's. The impact of these eight small brigades dislodged four Federal brigades from their intrenched line at and each side of the R.R. - where the spear-head of the attack was aimed. This, the critical molment of the battle is pictured in the Cyclorama at Grant Park. 060-100B GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1956"
