Osterhaus' Division - Blair's Corps

Brigadier General Peter J. Osterhaus.


Nov. 25, 1863, 3 P.M.

1st Brigade, Brigadier General Charles R. Woods.

2d Brigade, Colonel James A. Williamson.



This division, being the head of General Hooker's Column, reached Rossville from Lookout Mountain at 3 p.m. November 25th. It pushed through the Gap which was defended by a small force of infantry and artillery and turned northward upon a road running parallel to and about 1000 yards east of Missionary Ridge. After marching nearly a mile the command formed in echelons of brigades, the Second Brigade on the left and the First on the right. They moved obliquely up the slope of Missionary Ridge and carried the crest. The Command bivouacked on the eastern slope of the Ridge in the vicinity of Bragg's headquarters. The enemy's line against which it had been operating in co-operation with Cruft's and Geary's Divisions was held by the Division of Major General Stewart.
