1. Cleburne's Division in the Federal Rear
 

Inscription:
July 22, 1864. Cleburne´s 3 brigades, (CSA) after over-running the Federal left (at Glenwood), moved on the rear of its line facing W. on Flat Shoals Rd., at the same time Maney´s div. (CSA) attacked its front. Beset on both sides Giles Smith´s 17th A.C. div. (USA) was swept N. to Leggett´s Hill. Cleburne not only outflanked Smith´s div., but forced Fuller´s troops, on the rt. to withdraw to a line E. of Leggett´s Hill. In the move toward Leggett´s Hill, Cleburne´s troops captured 8 Federal guns of the 2d Ill. & 2d U.S. Artillery. Gen. McPherson was killed in front of Cleburne´s skirmish line.
