Medical Director, 2nd Division, 20th Army Corps.

The hospital of the 3rd Division, 14th Corps and the hospital of the 2nd Division, 20th Corps were located in this vicinity. A good spring, a church and several houses afforded comfort for the wounded. The wounded from the various divisions engaged in this vicinity including a large number of Confederates were accumulated at this hospital. About 10:30 on the morning of September 20th this hospital became untenable due to the proximity of the enemy. Before its capture as many of the wounded as possible were evacuated via the Rossville Gap to Chattanooga by ambulance, wagon, or on foot. Sixty nontransportable cases remained in the hospital of the 3rd Division, 14th Corps, in charge of three medical officers with tentage and medical supplies. This Corps lost in all by capture in the battle nineteen medical officers who remained with the wounded at the captured hospitals. The hospital of the 2nd Division, 20th Corps, lost by capture here thirty wounded, nontransportable cases, together with four medical officers and the tents and supplies left with the wounded.
