July 20, 1864. Not until O'Neal's Alabama & Mississippi troops [CS] plunged down the wooded slope from Collier Rd., did the formation of Geary's [US] refused line & the re-entrant angle created thereby, become apparent to them.

Geary's right (Jones' brigade) joined the left of Williams' div. on ridge N. of the ravine.

Being in low ground & beset on each flank by cross-fire, O'Neal's left pushed forward to a temporary line-break, while his right swung around to assail Geary's line flank & rear. By stubborn fighting & O'Neal's lack of support, Geary was able to hold his position.
