The outer Atlanta defense line crossed Clear Cr. a short distance S.W. of Walker's (or Jones') Mill (just below the present R.R. bridge).

July 20, 1864. The right of Bate's division (rt. of Hardee's corps) (CSA) rested on Clear Creek. From this sector Bate's div. moved N.W. to attack Newton's 4th A.C. div. posted on the ridge just above Collier Rd. Bate led off in the concerted attack by Hardee's & Stewart's corps (by divisions obliquely in echelon) - his route through the forest wilderness just west of Clear Creek. In line E. of the creek was Hood's old corps (under Gen. B.F. Cheatham) - not actively engaged in the Battle of Peachtree Creek.
