Brig. Gen. Nathan B. Forrest.

— Sept. 20, 1863 —

Forrest's (Cavalry) Corps.
Brig. Gen. Nathan B. Forrest.
Sept. 20, 1863
Armstrong's Division - Brig. Gen. Frank C. Armstrong.
Pegram's Division - Brig Gen. John Pegram.

This Corps, except Scott's Brigade of Pegram's Division, was formed on the right of Breckinridge's Division and ordered to move forward with it. Armstrong's Division was dismounted, except a small force, and Pegram was in reserve to the right and rear. Upon moving forward, the mounted force of Armstrong's Division reached and crossed the LaFayette Road capturing the Union hospitals in the vicinity of Cloud's house. About 1 P.M. these hospitals were recaptured by the advance of Granger's Reserve Corps approaching the field from McAfee's Church. This latter column was shelled vigorously from Forrest's position, but without seriously delaying its advance. After Granger's column had passed on toward Thomas' position on Snodgrass Hill, Forrest reoccupied the Lafayette Road and held it until attacked by Turchin's Brigade of Reynold's Division near the close of the battle.
