Breckinridge's Corps

— Maj. Gen. Carter L. Stevenson —

[Text from the First Tablet]:

Stevenson's Division - Breckinridge's Corps.
Maj. Gen. Carter L. Stevenson.
Nov. 24, 1863
Brown's Brigade - Brig. Gen. John C. Brown.
Cumming's Brigade - Brig. Gen. Alfred Cumming.
Pettus' Brigade - Brig. Gen. Edmund W. Pettus.
Cherokee Artillery - Capt. Max Van Den Corput.

Nov. 23d, upon the withdrawal of Walker's Division from the line west of Chattanooga Creek to the extreme right on Missionary Ridge, Gen. Stevenson with his own and three Brigades of Cheatham's Division under Brig. Gen. Jno K. Jackson was assigned to the defence of that line and of Lookout Mountain, covering a distance of about 14 miles. At the opening of the engagement Nov. 24, Brown's and Pettus' Brigades and the Artillery, occupied the top of the Mountain; Walthall's Brigade held the western slope to Lookout Creek; Moore's was on the eastern slope between the Summertown Road and Cravens': Cumming and Jackson held Walker's former position between the base of the Mountain and Chattanooga Creek.

[Text from the Second Tablet]:

The entire attack of Hooker's forces fell upon Walthall, and he received no support until the Union forces had captured Cravens' and forced Walthall 400 yards east of it. Here he rallied his line at 1 P.M. Moore then advanced on his right, and Pettus with three regiments arrived from the top of the Mountain and relieved his line which replenished ammunition, returned and assisted Pettus, their line being maintained until the engagement closed at night. During the engagement sharpshooters on the edge of the bluffs and one section of the Cherokee Artillery fired upon the slopes below, and stones and lighted shell were thrown down all with little effect because of the fog. At 7 P.M. the Division with its artillery and ordinance trains withdrew from the mountain by the Summertown Road.
