July 22, 1864. Manigault’s brigade, Brown’s div., Cheatham’s A.C. (CS) attacked this sector where Martin’s & Lightburn’s brigades were posted astride the Decatur rd. & the Ga. R.R. cut. Manigault’s troops broke the Federal line at the cut, thereby forcing the
withdrawal of Lightburn & Martin from this sector of the entrenched line of Logan’s 15th corps.
A counter assault by Lightburn & Martin, together with Manny’s 16th A.C. brigade (brought up from the battlefield area S. of the R.R.), recovered the Federal line & the DeGress battery which Manigault’s men had seized but had not be able to remove.
