——————

Carlin's brigade ascended Lookout at dusk Nov. 24th and relieved the right of General Hooker's line under the palisades east of the Craven's house. During the morning of the 25th it descended Lookout Mountain, recrossed Chattanooga Creek and rejoined its division soon after noon, forming its right. The 1st and 2nd brigades of the division formed the right of the assaulting column of the Army of the Cumberland on the afternoon of November 25th against Missionary Ridge. The two brigades moved to the assault simultaneously with the three divisions of Sheridan, Wood and Baird on the left. They carried the earthworks at the foot of the ridge and steadily fought their way up to the summit, the center reaching the crest about this point. The 3rd brigade remained in the entrenchments about Chattanooga.
