Brig. Gen. John Pegram.
Sept. 20th, 1863.
Davidson's Brigade — Brig. Gen. H.B. Davidson.
Scott's Brigade — Col. John S. Scott.

Davidson's Brigade of this Division took position Sunday morning Sept. 20th, about one mile east of this point, facing the road, and forming the extreme right of Bragg's Army. It observed the approach of Granger's forces from McAfee's Church and when Armstrong's Division occupied this road, Pegram's Division moved up within a quarter of a mile of this position. At dusk its advance skirmishers were in close contact with the head of General Sheridan's Union Division which had advanced from Rossville at 5 P.M., and reached near this point at 7 P.M.

Scott's Brigade operated during the day in the vicinity of Ringgold Bridge, and held that point at dark.
