May 28, 1864. On ridge W., were the intrenched lines of the 1st div., 15th A.C. & the 2d div., 16th A.C. [US]; beyond ravine E., the lines of Bates div. of Hardee's corps [CS].

Late afternoon, Lewis' Ky. (Orphan) & Finley's Florida brigades, [CS] made a desperate assault across the ravine & scaled the high ground W. - the Orphans in the advance - their losses, 51 per cent because of failure to receive orders to withdraw.

This futile attempt by the Ky. Orphans is one of the notable instances of heroism & disaster in the Atlanta Campaign.
