Inscription:
Walker & Bate At Sugar Cr.


July 22, 1864. Walker´s & Bate´s divisions of Hardee´s A.C. enroute to the rear of the 17th A.C. in East Atlanta, detoured here along the West bank of the creek to keep contact with Cleburne´s & Maney´s divisions moving upon the Federal left flank via Flat Shoals Road, 3/4 mile West.

This detour was in sequence with the misdirected march of Cleburne´s & Maney´s troops and it entailed a circuitous by-passing of Terry´s mill pond, northward of which, Walker´s & Bate´s divisions found Federal forces squarely across their front. General Walker was killed at the upper end of the pond while bringing his troops forward to the battlefield.
