This Brigade was dispatched with its Division the afternoon of Nov. 23d from the line of earthworks between Chattanooga Creek and Lookout Mountain, to Missionary Ridge, where it took position a mile south of the tunnel to observe the enemy's forces which had captured Orchard Knob. About 2 P.M., Nov. 25th, Maney's Brigade sent to Gen. Hardee, reached Tunnel Hill during the hottest of the fighting, and was posted at this point in rear of Smith's Texas Brigade. The 1st and 27th Tennessee, Col. Feild, was advanced to the front of the works, and in conjunction with the 2d, 15th and 24th Arkansas (consolidated), Col. Warfield, of Govan's Brigade, and the 56th and 36th Georgia of Cumming's Brigade, charged the enemy's line driving them down the western slope and beyond its foot. A return attack was repulsed by the 50th Tennessee and troops of Cleburne's Division, capturing several colors and many prisoners.
