Brannan's Division

— Thomas' Corps —

Croxton's Brigade
Brannan's Division - Thomas' Corps.
Col. John T. Croxton.
Col. Wm. H. Hays.
Sept. 20, 1863. Afternoon.
4th Kentucky - Maj. John M. Kelley.
14th Ohio - Lieut. Col. Henry D. Kingsbury.
10th Kentucky - Lieut. Col. Gabriel C. Wharton.
10th Indiana (one company).

While Harker's brigade was holding the head of Longstreet's column in check in the northern extremity of the Dyer field, portions of Croxton's and Connell's brigades were forming on this line, they having been driven from the Poe farm by Longstreet's command. Croxton having been wounded, Colonel Hays succeeded to the command. Portions of the 10th and 4th Kentucky, and 14th Ohio rallied here. The 10th and 74th Indiana of this brigade moved to the left when the break occurred and fought with Reynolds' division during the rest of the day, and when that division was withdrawn from the field about 5:30 P.M. one company of the 10th Indiana rejoined its brigade near this position. The line at this point maintained its position until the close of the battle, and withdrew about 7:30 to Rossville by McFarland's Gap.
