Brig. Gen. James B. Steedman.

Steedman's Division - Granger's Corps.
Brig. Gen. James B. Steedman.

Sep. 20, 1863, 2 to 6 P.M.
1st Brigade - Brig. Gen. Walter C. Whitaker.
2nd Brigade - Col. John C. Mitchell.
——————————

This division arrived in rear of Snodgrass House at 2 P.M. from McAffe's Church, and with Whitaker in advance moved to the right and up the ravine in rear of Snodgrass Hill, thence wheeling to the left, attacked with great vigor and drove the enemy over the ridge. Mitchell's Brigade, prolonging the line on the right, assaulted and carried the ridge, and pushed the enemy toward the extremity of the spurs above the Vittetoe House. The fight continued with intensity until sundown, when the division, being out of ammunition, withdrew under orders to the next ridge in the rear. The 21st and 89th Ohio, and the 22nd Michigan, on the left of Whitaker's Brigade, were not notified to withdraw and a large part of each were captured. At 7 P.M. the division marched for Rossville by way of McFarland's Gap. The total force taken into action was 3,913. Loss: Killed 212; Wounded 962; Captured and Missing 613; Total 1,787. Of 216 commissioned officers 15 were killed; 66 wounded; and 35 Missing. The arrival of Steedman's troops unquestionably saved the position on Snodgrass Hill.
