Cruft's Division - Granger's Corps.

— Brig. Gen. Walter C. Whitaker —

Whitaker's Brigade.
Cruft's Division - Granger's Corps.
Brig. Gen. Walter C. Whitaker

Nov. 25th, 1863
96th Illinois - Col. Thomas E. Champion,
96th Illinois - Maj. George Hicks,
35th Indiana - Col. Bernard F. Mullen,
8th Kentucky - Col. Sidney M. Barnes,
40th Ohio - Col. Jacob E. Taylor,
51st Ohio - Lieut. Col. Charles H. Wood,
99th Ohio - Lieut. Col. John E. Cummings.

The Brigade, leaving the 8th Kentucky and the 96th Illinois on the summit of Lookout, which position they had been the first to occupy after the battle, reached Rossville Gap at 4 P.M. with Hooker's column, and supported Grose's Brigade in assaulting Missionary Ridge. Approaching the summit, it threw forward the 35th Indiana, and the 51st Ohio onto the left of Grose's front line. The Confederates on the summit of the Ridge were found in entrenchments constructed by Cruft's Division when it was withdrawn from the Battlefield of Chickamauga. The Brigade with Grose's on its right, and Geary's Division moving along the western base of the Ridge, advanced upon the western slope steadily pressing back the thin line of Confederates to a point within about a half mile of the position already reached by the assaulting force on the center. Here the fighting ceased, and the Brigade bivouacked.
