Havis' Georgia Battery.
Two 12-per. Napoleons, Two James Rifles.
Maj. Felix H. Robertson's Reserve Artillery.

November 25, 1863, 4 P.M.
1st Lieut. James R. Duncan, Commanding.

2d Lieut. James R. Rice.

The Battery occupied this position during the assault on the ridge in the space between the left of Finley's Brigade of Breckinridge's Division, commanded by General Bate, and the right of Adam's Brigade of Stewart's Division. An incessant and destructive fire was kept upon the advancing line in the valley and along the slopes of the ridge, until the enemy was within a few feet of the line on the crest, when General Bragg in person ordered the Battery to retire to the next range of ridges, where a new line was being formed.

As the Battery moved down and commenced the ascent of the next ridge, the Confederate line which had been forced from its position on the main ridge, failed to rally on the second, and the Battery was compelled to retire to the next range east, about 1,000 yards, from the first position, where a final stand was made till ordered to retire after dark.

Casualties: 2 Napoleon Guns; and a few men and horses.
