Featherston's [Confederate] attack was delayed by skirmishers while Wood deployed his 4 regts. to meet it - a counter-assault that drove the Mississippians up the slope. An attempt to penetrate the Fed. Line between Wood & Kimball was prevented by the 73d & 55th Ohio regts. Driven to & S. of the rd., Featherston made an effort to dislodge Wood's troops from rail barricades there, but lack of support on his left & right forced his withdrawal. 060-34 GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1955"
