July 22, 1864. Gen. Bate's div., Hardee's A.C. (CS) was deployed on the rt. of Walker's div. when they advanced N. from Terry's Mill pond. Being on the extreme rt. of the corps, Bate's troops moved up the east side of Sugar Cr., valley and swung westward to face Rice's 16th A.C. (US) brigade posted on the hill (Murphy High School) and northward along the old Clay Rd. (Clay St.).

This attack failed to dislodge Rice's brigade. Bate's command consisted of three brigades - composed of Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and Kentucky troops - the 5 regiments of the latter being the celebrated "Orphan Brigade" (CS) commanded by Brig. Gen. Joseph H. Lewis.
