Croxton's Brigade, Brannan's Division

— Thomas' Corps. —

Battery C, 1st Ohio Light Artillery.
4 James, 2 Napoleons.
Croxton's Brigade, Brannan's Division, Thomas' Corps.

September 20, 1863.
1st Lieutenant Marco B. Gary, Commanding.
1st Lieutenant Hiram W. Turner.
2d Lieutenant Thomas King.
2d Lieutenant Jerome B. Stephens.

At 7 a.m. the Battery took position in the rear line of the Brigade, and as the enemy attacked, Lieutenant Turner's section moved to this position and opened fire, being joined soon after by the rest of the battery. About 11 a.m. the enemy appeared marching by the flank across the front and about 600 yards distant. The Battery opened fire upon him. Changing direction he attacked the line of the Battery and after capturing nearly all of the 4th Michigan Battery and driving away the infantry he pushed to within 100 yards of the right piece. Changing direction of fire to the right oblique the Battery threw canister with great rapidity and fine effect. The enemy soon fell back and the support resumed their position on the right of the Battery. Fifteen minutes later, the enemy again advancing perpendicularly to its original front and to within 100 yards, the supports gave way, the Battery moved to the left and rear, where it joined the troops of General Negley and moved with them to Rossville. Casualties: killed 4 men, wounded 9; horses killed and captured 26; lost James gun 1; caissons 1; rear parts of caissons 1.
