July 22, 1864. Brig. Gen. John C. Brown´s div. of Cheatham´s A.C. moved astride the Georgia R.R., E. from the Atlanta fortifications to attack the Federals at the Troup Hurt house.

Manigault´s brigade, followed by Sharp´s, were north of the R.R.; Coltart´s & Benton´s S. of it. Manigault´s brigade halted in a ravine to reform its line while Coltart´s brigade, S. of the R.R. came up abreast. Resuming the charge, Manigault´s men ascended the slope to & beyond the Pope house, penetrating the Federal line at the railroad cut & seizing the Illinois batteries. A remnant of the ravine is still visible in Springvale Park.
