Cumming's Brigade
Stevenson's Division - Breckinridge's Corps.
Brig. Gen. Alfred Cumming.
Nov. 25, 1863, Afternoon.
34th Georgia - Col. J. A. W. Johnson, Wounded.
38th Georgia - Lieut. Col. A. E. Wallace, Wounded.
39th Georgia - Col. J. T. McConnell, Killed.
56th Georgia - Lieut. Col. J. T. Slaughter, Wounded.


About 1 P.M. the regiments of the Brigade were sent in succession to Gen. Cleburne's line on Tunnel Hill. Col. McConnell was killed and Lieut. Col. Slaughter wounded in securing position. The position and persistent Union attack, arriving within 25 yards of the artillery, suggested a charge down upon it with the bayonet. This Gen. Cumming, with the approval of Gen. Cleburne, proposed to lead from this position with the 56th Ga. Regiment, supported by the 36th Ga. ten paces in rear. In the third attack, in which the 34th and 39th Regiments of the Brigade, and other troops joined, the assaulting column was driven down the slope, and beyond its foot and several stand of colors and many prisoners were captured.

After removing its dead and wounded, the Brigade withdrew within the breast-works and soon after was ordered to the left, but finding the ridge carried at the center, retired under orders toward Chickamauga Station.

Casualties: Killed 17; Wounded 156; Missing 30.
