Brig. Gen. Nathan Kimball, Commanding.
Organization.
14th Indiana Infantry,

7th West Virginia Infantry.
September 17, 1862.

Kimball's Brigade following Weber and Morris, encountered the enemy in the Bloody Lane and in the Cornfield to the south.

The contest there was of the most desperate character, and continued until after noon when, supported on the left by Richardson's Division, the brigade attacked the enemy and gained the Bloody Lane.

An attack on the right flank was met and repulsed by a change of front of the Ohio and Indiana regiments, forming the right wing of the brigade in its final assault on the enemy's position.
