August 21, 1864. In this locality, the highest in Memphis, a section (2 guns) of Forrest's artillery was emplaced under Lt. Sale, supporting his raid on Memphis. Fire was directed against Federals in buildings of the State Female College about 700 yards northeast, until it was learned that women and children were in the buildings.
