September 19, 1863.

The Battery with Meg's and Carlin's Brigades of Davis' Division arrived at Widow Glenn's soon after noon and reported to General Rosecrans. The Division was ordered to the front and soon became hotly engaged with the enemy in the timber northeast of Viniard's. The Battery came into position on this ground, by order of General Davis, and remained during the afternoon without becoming seriously engaged, and encamped on this part of the field during the night. The Battery was not actively engaged on the 20th and retired to McFarland's Gap soon after noon, and to Rossville at night. No casualties.
