Gen. John Bell Hood´s 13,000 troops down Powder Springs Road to stop the Federal army´s threat to his flank. When Confederate skirmishers encountered Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker´s 11,000 man Union Corps here at Kolb’s Farm, Hood ordered his troops to attack.


Hooker, having learned of Hood´s plans from some captured Confederates, ordered his troops to dig in. At 4:00 p.m. Hood sent two of his three divisions towards the waiting Federals. After several unsuccessful charges through the woods, fields, and swamps across the road, the battered Confederates withdrew.
