Cruft's Division

— Granger's Corps —

Whitaker's Brigade.
Cruft's Division - Granger's Corps.
Brig. Gen. Walter C. Whitaker

Nov. 24th, 1863
96th Illinois - Col. Thomas E. Champion,
96th Illinois - Maj. George Hicks,
35th Indiana - Col. Bernard F. Mullen,
8th Kentucky - Col. Sidney M. Barnes,
40th Ohio - Col. Jacob E. Taylor,
51st Ohio - Lieut. Col. Charles H. Wood,
99th Ohio - Lieut. Col. John E. Cummings.

The Brigade crossed Lookout Creek with Geary's Division about 9 o'clock and formed the second line. The right of the Brigade reached the foot of the palisades, and in the advance maintained its position next to the palisades, and upon reaching the north point of the mountain moved down upon the Cravens House position, attacking the flank of the Confederate line which was opposing Geary's advance, and pressing on some 200 yards beyond Cravens, assisted in holding the line until the Confederates withdrew from the mountain. On the morning of the 25th, five volunteers from the 8th Kentucky, under Capt. Wilson of Company C, climbed the palisades to the top of the mountain, and finding it evacuated unfurled the flag of the regiment on the point.
